At Greenleaf Community Work Habits Program, students watch an animated movie that helps them learn to handle their emotions.

“We’ve been through a lot lately that’s for sure, but we still love our girl. She has great new friends, a great new house. Things couldn’t be better.”

About a half dozen students started the program this fall. It’s geared for developmentally disabled people seeking opportunities outside of a workshop’s controlled environment.

Credit scores are all-important.  That number determines whether we can buy a car or house, and what we'll pay in interest.  For low income people, raising a credit score can be a challenge.  A new program aims to help people raise their scores and then keep them high.
