Tori's Story

Tori, a single mom, was at the end of her rope after a stressful night with her four children. She felt desperate and overwhelmed at the thought of raising her children on her own. Tori remembered the Parenting HelpLine, picked up the phone and placed the call. It was a lifeline for her - in this moment of crisis and when she just needed advice here and there.
