John's Story

John was a father of three who was arrested and charged with child abuse. He was raising his children the way he was raised. He did not understand it was abuse. He came to The Family Tree ashamed of his situation, unclear of what help he would get. He left empowered with the tools he needed to make a change for his family. The first thing he did was apologize to his children, then forgive himself. From there, the healing began.


Lives Changed

The classes taught me how to handle things for both my kids and myself. I really began to improve as a mother. It helped me see the good and the love, no matter how hard things were.
