Our Impact

Latisha Ely and Sayeed Latorre

Living in an unheated two bedroom home with eleven other family members, Latisha knew she needed a better future for her children. She came to ACHIEVEability with her sons Sayeed and Amir. While in the program she worked on credit repair, personal development and budgeting. She made time for personal and family counseling services. In 2013, Latisha earned a bachelor’s degree from Peirce College in business administration. Today, Latisha is a small business analyst at PECO.

Seeing his mother find strength through adversity and gaining tools from his own counseling sessions, Sayeed developed into a highly motivated young man. Today he has his own plan for success and is studying business administration at Community College of Philadelphia. His goal is to pursue a bachelor’s degree with the dream of owning his own business one day.
