Congreso Success Story: Linda Morales 

Meet Linda Morales, a mother of three who recently graduated from our Human Services Pathway Program! Enrolling in the program enabled her to accomplish her personal goals despite the ongoing challenges of COVID-19. 

“I discovered the Human Services Pathway Program during a time where my struggles seemed to overshadow my dreams. This program helped me remember my "why" and fortify my passion to create a positive change within my community. It was a challenging and fast paced course yet fun, relatable, and with encouraging mentors. Thanks to this program, I finally feel like I am becoming the person I am meant to be. Now, I'm even volunteering in the community as a ‘Congreso Promotora’ to raise awareness about the COVID-19 vaccine and hopefully many other opportunities in the future. I am forever grateful that they gave this mom of three a chance to put her dream and goals back into focus.” 

In partnership with the Lenfest Foundation, Temple University’s North Philadelphia Workforce Initiative, and Temple University Harrisburg, The Human Services Pathway program is designed to prepare students for employment in the human services field.
