Jet is a re-payer. As a teenage mom in the 1970s, Jet was able to access community services she needed to continue her education.
“I had access to the right help at the right time,” said Jet, who is now the chair of Women United, a volunteer group of women through United Way of Treasure Valley.
As a young mom with little means, child care support made earning a bachelor’s degree possible through night classes. And, behavioral and mental health support meant a mother and daughter could thrive, together.
