I needed my daughter to see me as someone who would rise out of adversity. That I wouldn't crumble in the ashes, but rise from them.
Parenting class has become a community and support system for me. I love that I can come and be myself, share my mom-fails, and leave with a restored hope that I can be a good mom and more effective parent.
Going through the work prep program filled in the gaps and gave me the tools I needed. I am proud to send out my resume. I can walk out of an interview with confidence. I can provide for my kids.
Recieving the Emerge Mirco-Loan gave me the opportunity and funds to start my own business and still be at home with my kids. I love that I can take something I'm passionate about and bring that into my work!
Having a safe place to land as a single mom in the midst of chaos is life changing. Meeting with the Emerge social worker has given me strength as I make peace with my new normal.
Even though I am new to my journey as a single mom, through Emerge Mothers Academy, I found the strength to help a friend who is walking through the same thing.
Once my son turned four, I did not feel equipped to relate to him on a new level because my mother never connected with me. Through parenting classes with Emerge Mothers Academy, I learned how easy it is to ask my child questions and to listen to him.
