CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO — An organization in Cape Girardeau has helped a single mother get a brand new car through its Matching Car Fund program.
According to a Facebook post from the page, Brittany graduated from their work-life program in October 2021. They say she’s been “hustling” since then, working full-time as a single mom.

On its website, One City describes itself as a faith-based organization dedicated to uniting its community through resources, relationships, and community development.
They say that through their faith they are called to break down barriers. All are welcome and valued in their community center, it is a place of unity and collaboration.
One city offers several programs for the community, including the “Work Life” program, which Brittany is graduating from in 2021. According to the One Life website, Work Life is a 10-week employment readiness program, based on the Bible, aimed at the unemployed or underemployed. .
According to One City, they teach more than standard job skills, like writing a resume or ace an interview. They want to go the extra mile, empower people and help them “find dignity and purpose through meaningful work.”
In addition to the Work Life program, they provide many artistic opportunities for children in the community, including free and discounted art and dance classes and art exhibits.
