“I’m just going to keep going and try to live my best life. Every day.”

Paul, in his mid 60s, was struggling to keep his home and provide for his family. Carmella, a high school student, felt overwhelmed trying to care for her infant son while studying for classes. Watch their story and see how they’re making better lives for themselves with the help of United Way’s programs—and its caring and committed staff.
