One Mom's Story

This letter was submitted by a local mom who was impacted by Family Center's United Way funded program.

This class has meant more to me than I could possibly express in words. I am currently in the middle of a pretty nasty divorce with three beautiful children in the mix.

I was at one of the lowest points in my life when I picked up the phone and called the Family Center. I was so lucky because their Nurturing Program was starting soon and I was able to get in.

The program gave me a safe place to look forward to every week and my children loved coming to such a positive place. The program taught me that if I want my children to behave in a certain way, the example starts with me.

I also learned that there are things that were hindering my efforts. For example, it’s not what you say but how you say it that matters. I want to empower my children to be the best they can be and this class has greatly improved my chances of success.

This class has also helped me improve on the concept of rules, repetition, and routine. My children have really responded well to the more established routines in the morning and before bed. It has really helped me to be a better parent too.

I thank you for supporting this program. You really helped save me and my family, and I am forever grateful to you.
