Sarah's Story

Sarah, an unemployed mom exhausted and defeated by the struggle of raising three young children, felt she had no where to turn for help. After a night of misbehavior, she was on the verge of hitting her children. It was the only way she could control them. Instead, Sarah picked up the phone and called The Family Tree. A kind voice on the other end connected her to a home visitation program. Her home visitor helped her develop her parenting skills, connected her with community resources, and helped her feel she wasn't alone. She learned effective ways to discipline her kids and there were people she could lean on for support. For the first time, she had hope.

Lives Changed

When I started my 12-week Positive Parenting Program, I began to realize what it meant to be a good parent. I kept going to the classes and each week I learned new ways to raise my son. Before long, my friends at The Family Tree had helped me figure out my strengths and find the confidence to use them. For the first time, I saw the possibilities of a happy, healthy future with my son.
