Thanks to Kramden Institute, a United Way partner, Michelle was able to get a used laptop at a deep discount so that she can continue school virtually.

Though more economical than driving, Michelle’s kids are also learning virtually with their own special laptop provided by the school system. Now she is having to do her own school work while simultaneously juggling their needs.

She loves her kids and wants them to feel it so she frequently steps away from coursework in order to be more present with them. But she’s falling behind as a result and knows this can’t be a permanent solution.
