Cara's Story

Cara dropped out of school and got into drugs and other trouble, spending most of her time on the streets. At 15, Cara got pregnant. She was scared. She was a kid herself. How could she care for a baby? Then, one day, her aunt brought home a flyer for The Family Tree’s “Just for Moms” Program, a program for teen mothers. It was being offered at the local hospital in her neighborhood. Cara went to sit in on a class and it ended up changing her life. For the first time, she was with people who really understood her. With their help, she learned how to care for herself, care for her baby, and how to be a good parent. As a result, Cara realized she needed to finish her education. She is now studying to take her GED.





Lives Changed
