Skyla, is a 23 year old mother of five who lives in Chillicothe, Ohio. Through a Ross County Community Action program called “Determined To Succeed” she has become a shining example of how someone can thrive despite being confronted with numerous barriers.
Determined To Succeed is a newly developed program at Ross County Community Action that was started to help individuals with the will and determination to become successful, but who may lack the resources needed to make it so.
Through the Determined To Succeed Program, Skyla has received her GED, moved into her own apartment and has completed the steps necessary to obtain her driver’s license. She is now providing for herself and her family and plans to continue on to achieve bigger and better things in the future.
