OUR SERVICES AND PROGRAMS


When I first came into the program I was very scared. I wanted help. I am a very young mother with 3 beautiful children that need a good mommy. I came here with an open mind and willingness to learn. The last 2 months have changed me in so many ways. I have grown as a woman and a parent. I have formed a bond with the other ladies in The Program, along with the girls in work release. I have learned that I am a person of importance and I matter. I have made mistakes. I don’t need to stay stuck in those mistakes anymore. I also have some guilt for the things I have done but I am finally able to move past them. I now know I am worth having a good life. The Program doesn’t just deal with teaching parenting skills, it’s about having more support systems in your life. Without The Program I’m not sure if I would be able to know my own worth. I deserve to have my children today. I will keep showing up!

I just wanted to let you know what I learned in this program. I learned how to manage money and to have my own bank account. I am learning now how to own my own house. The financial literacy class taught me a lot and I was happy to take this program. Life is a little bit easier now. The Program’s Housing Assistance allowed me to save a lot of money. My rent is paid 4 months in advance, thanks to the assistance The Program provided me.
