Single mother Fran transitioned to the community

By Susan Staples | Women's trainer and reporting coordinator

Fran and her children
Fran and her children

Fran had lived at Home of the Swallow for almost 2 years.  She just transitioned from HOS back into the community last month. She and her two children first came to HOS because her husband was addicted to drugs and was threatening to kill both her and the two children.  Over the time that Fran has lived here, she’s grown in many different areas. Her first few months here were spent recovering from trauma and spending time with her son, aged 2 and daughter, aged 4.

Over the time that Fran has lived here at HOS, she’s grown in many different areas. She says that she's not the same person that she was when she first came here.  She has experienced a lot of healing over the time that she's been here.  She's also now able to deal with the needs of her children rather than simply focusing on her own needs.  She's matured a lot and has learned how to better deal with her emotions.  Fran says she’s proud of herself for coming to this point in her life without giving up and for being able to take care of herself and her children - a far cry from where she was when she came to HOS.

Throughout the time she’s been at HOS, she’s taken sewing lessons and is now able to teach other women.  She works part time teaching sewing at another NGO here in Chiang Mai.  She now has a full time job working as a security guard at a local Thai company   Her children still attend the nursery at HOS, and we are here to help her in any way we can.
