The Boston-Baileys – a Family with Promise

There’s no stopping the Boston-Baileys.

Cortez and Trayvon enrolled in Wisconsin Promise and each family member participated and worked hard to achieve their individual and family goals!

Cortez is working, bought his own car, and has plans for college so he can give back to his community. Trayvon is learning and working in the community. And the family? They started their very own cleaning business.

They’re a family with Promise, working together to reach their school, work, and financial goals.
