Kelly is no longer overwhelmed
“Most days, I wanted to give up, I felt like I was failing!” Says Kelly, a hardworking mother of two girls ages six and thirteen.*
As a single mom, Kelly struggled every day. Tasks like getting the kids to and from school, helping with homework, or having time to prepare nutritious meals felt nearly impossible. She was overwhelmed!
But Kelly’s story didn’t end there because your gift gave her the opportunity to participate in parenting classes through Healthy Homes at the community center right where she lives.
