Mi Casa taught me everything I needed to know to succeed in my new job. But perhaps the most important thing the staff at Mi Casa gave me is a renewed sense of confidence - they helped remind me that I am smart and capable of whatever I put my mind to.
Mi Casa helped open several doors for me, not just for a job but for a career. I've showed myself that I can do the best and I can be the best and I'm going to do it every day. And most importantly, I am a role model for my daughter.

"Participating in Mi Casa’s programs made me into a well-rounded, involved young person. It gave me fun and also educational experiences that I couldn’t have obtained on my own. I met adults that were great role models for me who helped me strive for more in my education and in my daily life."

"Not only did I gain the confidence to talk to customers and clients, but now I’m also clearer on my future career path. I enjoyed the employer tours that Mi Casa took us on so I could see how banks and credit unions really work."

“When I told my supervisor I was going to start a business, he told me I had three things working against me: being female, young, and Latina,” says Jessica. “I told him wait and see – I’m going to make those things work for me instead of against me.”
