By On September 21, 2015

A mother of two and victim of domestic violence, WINGS grant recipient Noelia Miller is changing her life story.   Zonta Club of Burbank Area awarded Miller a WINGS grant to help her reach her goal of becoming a vocational nurse.

Twice a year, the Zonta Club offers grants up to $2,000. Application deadlines are April 30th and September 30th. Miller is the recipient of the April 2015 award. The WINGS grant is offered to women 21 years and older, who have endured a life altering setback/experience and seek to improve their status through education. The grants offer one-time financial assistance to the recipients.

Information and an application may be obtained by visiting www.zontaburbank.org for the upcoming September 30th deadline. Completed applications and supporting documents may be submitted via email as directed. First priority is given to Burbank residents, but applications will be considered from Glendale, North Hollywood, Toluca Lake, Sun Valley, Sunland/Tujunga, Studio City, Shadow Hills, Panorama City, Pacoima, Arleta and other areas of the San Fernando Valley east of Van Nuys Blvd.

With the help of programs provided by Family Service Agency (FSA) in Burbank, Miller realized she is free, independent and capable of making a secure and happy home for herself and her children, without the domestic violence she previously endured. Miller believes the WINGS grant is…” a way to believe in me; to make a better life for my children, giving them education and motivation; to make a better world starting at home”.
