Emma arrived in our Brave Moms program as an apprehensive, wounded 19-year-old caring for her beautiful daughter Isabella, who was not even a year old.
She did not have support from friends and family to encourage her, but she connected with a local church where members referred her to our program. Over the course of a year, we welcomed hope into Emma and Isabella’s life by sharing the love of Christ with them and helping Emma see her potential, while providing her a safe, comfortable place to live.
Emma earned her diploma at a technical school and also got her first job. A donor made a special gift to her for Christmas — a vehicle – and Emma has moved into her own apartment and has enrolled in college for the fall.
Isabella has a contagious smile that lights up the room, and Emma has shared with us how happy she is to have opportunities that are changing both of their lives.
”Thank you, Brave Moms, for making me brave for Isabella so she, too, will grow up and be braveEmma
