A Step in the Right Direction: Judith's Story

We believe that every Tuesday can be a Giving Tuesday. Through November, we're sharing stories of real lives impacted by the Same Sky Foundation.


The road to financial freedom comes with all kinds of costs. The Same Sky Foundation is here to help for every step of the journey.


Judith was at a crossroads in her life. As a devoted mother of four, she had stepped away from the workforce to raise her family. But when economic hardship arose, Judith was ready to take the plunge back into full-time employment.


Her previous job at a security company made her a promising candidate for a position with A J Security. Prepared with a polished cover letter and interview techniques, Judith impressed her interviewers... but the requirements for employment blindsided her.

Without a valid SORA license, she couldn't be included among the candidate pool. Judith needed funds to pay for a training class, fingerprinting, and NJ state registration fees, and she couldn't afford it alone.

At Same Sky, we admire strivers and their personal efforts to turn unimaginable opportunity into reality. Upon completing her second interview, the Same Sky Foundation gave Judith the financing she needed to accept the position—and she did!
