When I arrived at Mother’s Refuge I was 21 years old and pregnant with my daughter.
At that time, I didn’t have anywhere safe to go and no one stable enough to help me. I was so scared about our future.
I thought Mother's Refuge would just be a safe place to sleep but it was so much more. I didn’t think I would learn as much as I did from Mother's Refuge. They gave me tools I needed to be able to be the mother I am today. They didn’t just help me learn - they taught me the fundamentals on being a parent to the best of my abilities.
I still get amazing guidance from Mother's Refuge even now as an Aftercare participant. They never stopped helping our family or put a limit on the care they provide. Without Mother’s Refuge I don’t know where I would be. Because of your support towards Mother’s Refuge, I am able to be a great mom, attend therapy in the aftercare program, receive help with furniture and other baby necessities like clothes and even food. Without the support from wonderful supporters, Mother's Refuge wouldn’t be what it is today. They wouldn’t be able to reach as many young families as they do without you. You are the pillars that hold Mother's Refuge up and my daughter and I can't thank you enough for your support! It takes a village to raise a child, thank you for being our village!
