Kids Home Initiative: Kelleyina’s Story

08-23-2018 · Kids Home Initiative


The Achievement Club program provides incentive payments to help people achieve their goals. During this process, families and neighbors will develop a valuable skill set for setting and achieving daily goals.

Here is a two-generational success story from Kelleyina in Cobb County:

Kelleyina and her children were all members of our Achievement Club at Yells, Inc. Kelleyina invested her first incentive payment and opened a business bank account. She appreciated the opportunity to earn extra money to help build her family’s future.

Kelleyina was named Club ‘Valedictorian’ because of her goal completion. She finished a total of 4 goals with focus and diligence. She is now in our Alumni Achievement Club, and another one of her daughters has joined our new club.

Way to Go, Kelleyina!
