Dorcas and her children have dreams today that once were inconceivable. Dorcas and her three young children came to the United States seeking religious and political asylum. They endured months of hardship, unemployment, and living in shelters. But today, Dorcas counts Daily Work as part of her "new family". As a speaker at Daily Work's May Luncheon, Dorcas said:
Daily Work has been a blessing to me. I love everyone I’ve met. They are problem solvers and they have been a wonderful resource to help me work through my fears and questions. All of you, along with St. Paul Reformation Church, are my new family.
My goal now is to become a Licensed Practical Nurse. My first step begins later this month on May 28, when I will take the class at St. Paul College to become a certified nursing assistant. After that I will get a job in the health care field and continue to pursue the education I need to become a licensed nurse.
One of my daughters wants to become a doctor. The other wants to be a teacher. My son…he wants to be everything…a pilot, a footballer, a pastor!
I want to be a leader to them. I want them to see me and know that they can be a solution to their generation.
