I wouldn’t be here in Yuma living out my dream as a teacher, impacting kids, without Kari. She offered me a job and shortly after that, a place in her home. I was tremendously blessed by her and her family. To be welcomed to Yuma in such loving fashion has had a lasting effect on me. I’ve no doubt others share that same sentiment. Thank you Kari.
