Coping with Uncertainty

Today’s climate has left most people nervous about the uncertainty that surrounds the future. However, for Doorways’ clients like Jasmine, who do not have support systems, the challenges can feel impossible to overcome.

“Although we are going through a shared experience (…), not everyone shares the same access to resources and safety nets.” —YW Boston on the COVID-19 pandemic

Quarantine measures have resulted in Jasmine being unable to work, complete her GED, or find needed items in grocery stores for her family. On top of being anxious about attending to her child’s needs during this challenging time, Jasmine is also anxious about money and making ends meet.

The immense pressure Jasmine was experiencing made her start to feel overwhelmed and alone.
