They are an essential resource to Chicagoland residents like Diana.
After spending several years raising her four children, Diana Rodriguez finally felt ready to take the next step. She asked her husband if she could go back to college or take a single class to learn about computers.
Her husband accused her of wanting to meet somebody else. That’s when Diana made the call to Between Friends.
