“I’ve done nothing but learn in the last year and a half. I’ve never felt such hope.”
These words perfectly capture what our Community Program Graduation night was like. Staff shared observations and blessings for each teen mom, and many of our girls shared sentiments similar to Allison’s sweet statement above.
