I was referred to The Whole Child’s Home Visiting Program through a program in Santa Monica. Before entering the program, I didn’t feel I had patience with my children. I was having a hard time finding housing and I needed support as I was becoming a single mother again.
Home visitation services have provided me with different resources in the community, improved my parenting skills, and given me activities to bond with my child. I am learning about his milestones, development and [forming] connections with other single mommies and their babies. The staff at The Whole Child and my parent educator are warm and welcoming.
My child and I have learned new activities and skills from the program. I see a bright future with positivity for my children and me. The Whole Child has positively impacted my life. I was going through a lot in the beginning and it has helped me feel proud of being a single mom. The Whole Child has given me confidence in raising my new baby.
