Bridgette was a foster child who needed help with her communication skills. Through UWSN’s early education program at the YMCA, Bridgette’s education did not stop during the pandemic and she received important social, emotional, and communication education during her most pivotal year of learning. Through United Way’s support, Bridgette now knows how to make good decisions, behave in a positive way and the consequences of bad choices.
