Tina Klein needed to work to provide for her family. Her husband is a partially disabled veteran. With a mix of good and bad days, he could not always care for their preschool-aged daughter. With their limited income, Tina didn’t know what to do.
A friend told her about the Westfield Area Y financial assistance program. Now, their daughter is in the Y full-day early learning program on Elm Street. Tina is able to work knowing her daughter is well cared for during the day.
“Our daughter is receiving the socialization she couldn’t get at home. She is safe, she is making friends, she is learning. It’s been a wonderful experience for the entire family. We are very thankful.”
