Dominiece Clifton had reached her breaking point. The 34-year-old was working three part-time jobs, raising two young girls with her entrepreneur husband, trying to be a dedicated wife and working to get her new Baltimore-based business off the ground. Tired of spreading herself thin and wondering if she’d be able to make her next mortgage payment, Clifton was ready to quit her dreams and go back to working a traditional 9-5 job. Then she got the call that changed her life: She’d won a no-strings-attached grant for $2,000 a month for one year.
