This nonprofit organization grew out of my own story of suffering – being a mother of 7. I lost a child when I was 23 and had to prepare a 2- and 3-year-old for the impending death of their sister. I was also in a difficult marriage and feeling stuck and unable to leave to a safer and healthier environment because of finances, being overwhelmed, and beat down. I didn’t know if I could support 6 children by myself. After years of working on my education and self-esteem, I did leave that situation but not before it took a toll on myself and children.
Now I am financially secure, and my children are all successfully launched. My dream has been to support and empower other women and families who are struggling and help them to get on their feet and thrive.
