Whatever It Takes

As a single mother, Nicole King works hard to give her children every opportunity available. Daycare, however, is one of those opportunities that is slipping through her fingers. Working full time, King still cannot afford the outrageous cost of daycare and is forced to rely on the help of her friends and family to watch her two children. King's sister, a victim of recent layoffs, is helping out until she finds another job. King is not the only one in this situation. She is one of the many on the Durham Social Service's waitlist to receive a voucher that will help out with the high costs of daycare. King's future is still uncertain, but in the meantime she works hard and comes home with a positive attitude and high hopes for her children.
