Single Father Finds Help and Hope

Jack is a single dad with four teenage children. He came to Mountain Resource Center (MRC), one of Mile High United Way’s Centers for Family Opportunity, because he had no job and was finding it challenging to transfer his military skills to a civilian world.

Then the father was deported, and their situation became more complicated.
