NORMA FELIX-MARTINS

NormaFrom the time she was very young, Norma always wanted to help others.  Gaining the skills and experience to enter a helping profession, however, was a dream that was always put on hold.  Throughout her life, she has had to overcome a wide variety of challenges, among them an alcoholic father, serious health issues in the family, and abandonment by her first husband after the birth of their daughter.  Now it is her turn to move beyond her job cleaning houses. 

After joining our Bridge to College Program in 2014, Norma became the de facto leader going out of her way to offer encouraging words too all of the other students and organizing an informal support group with fellow students.  The Friends of the CLC is proud to support Ms. Felix-Martins with a scholarship which she will use to reach her goal of becoming a counselor.
