Our shelter continues to be occupied and offer a space for mothers and their children. Here are words from one of our client presently living on site,iIn her words
“Your organization help me a lot , I did not had no where to go here and no family or friends and you took me in a nice home and help me and my son. It has given me a space and time to bond with my first born son, think about where I am in my life and where I want to go me and my son. What I have to do now that I am a mother. I can now see thing like go back and finish school which will help me to get a job it is helping me to make better choice for me and my son."
