Second Story for Young Mothers provides housing and support for young women and their children experiencing homelessness, like “Lisa” and her family. Lisa didn’t have a strong relationship with either of her parents. Her father physically abused her, and her mother kicked her out once Lisa became pregnant. Lisa moved from one friend’s house to the next while she waited for her baby to arrive until she learned about Second Story for Young Mothers. Since joining us, Lisa has started receiving benefits and paying off debt. She began working, attends therapy, and is participating in parenting classes. Staff are proud of her for taking advantage of everything the program has to offer and asking questions anytime she needs something. And Lisa is grateful to now have a safe, stable foundation into which her baby can be born.
