"This class has been so valuable and encouraging for me because it helped me realize I am not what society has tried to invoke on me...I am important, and I can make good choices even with the bad hand that circumstances have dealt me...it has really changed my life!"
Omaha Bridges Getting Ahead Graduate
“Getting Ahead helped me in my everyday life! I am more aware of what is going out and coming into my life! Money, taxes, when and what needs to be paid or not! Continuing my sobriety and everything that has happened do not have to define my future! Knowing budget and not overspending! So, so much I can say! I'm very grateful of this program!”

With the completion of this course, I feel better, I’m more confident in the choices that I have made to better myself and my children where there was doubt, and I’m just ready to chase my dreams head on...”
