"Times can get hard overnight. When my husband lost his job, we couldn’t afford some of the basics for our baby. Our neighbor told me that we could turn to the family center around the corner for some help. It’s made all the difference."

"I could feel my son and me growing apart. I knew we had to reconnect before he got into middle school. Thank goodness for the parents in the parenting group at my local family center. Just sharing our stories gave me new ideas that seem to be working."
