Kelsey’s Place

Helping people achieve self-sufficiency through motivation, education and employment is what Kelsey’s Place is all about. A recent participant attending GED prep classes faced a challenge completing the program when her work schedule changed. In order to keep her positive momentum going, her course work was uploaded onto a flash drive so that she could study from home and come into the office for grading and assistance as needed. Through hard work and encouragement, she passed all four subjects, obtained her GED and enjoyed a graduation ceremony at Kelsey’s Place with her family. She now plans on attending college and majoring in either marine biology or criminal justice.
