We’d like to introduce you to some very special people who, with the help of SVdP, are overcoming adversity and moving towards self sufficiency.  These brave people are sharing their stories with you in the hopes that you will understand some of the barriers they face and perhaps be inspired by their effort to build a better future for themselves and their families. Some of their names, photos, and details have been changed to protect their identities. But all of these stories are real.
