My child attended A Stepping Stone Foundation and graduated form the program in May of 2010. I went into the program because I was concerned about my daughter’s shyness and lack of interaction with other children. I received my high school diploma in 1997 and never attended college. I began to attend the GED classes offered by the foundation to sharpen my skills since it had been quite a few years since I graduated. It was tough at first but my teacher was patient and understanding. The foundation took our GED class on a small field trip to a local community college and to be honest I felt intimidated and scared. As we walked through the campus I began to realize that college was for me and that I was able to go and make something of myself. I was a stay at home mom and I thought that staying home with my children was what I was going to be doing for the rest of my life. Thanks to A Stepping Stone Foundation I have learned to shake off my fears and jump into early childhood teaching with confidence. I appreciate everything this foundation has done for me and my family because they not only helped my child decide what she wants to be when she grows up but what I want to be for the rest of my life.

The foundation has certainly changed my thoughts on the importance of education. I thank all of the people that support the foundation because I now feel confident enough to further my education and keep going strong to help my children do the same.

I went to preschool with A Stepping Stone Foundation. The staff and volunteers raised money in order to help young children and their families who are at disadvantage due to their socioeconomic setting. My preschool teacher was a staff of ASSF and she was wonderful in helping me prepare for Kindergarten. I would have been more behind in school if I did not receive an early education on English and social skills that the classroom provided. Also, when I attended college, ASSF was there to provide any support that I would have needed, especially morally. Everyone associated with ASSF were there to encourage me, provide assistance, and show passion in helping the next generation to succeed. I was blessed with the assistace of such a great organization. Now in graduate school, I am still in much contact with them and am always witnessing the future successful students that are graduating from this program.

A Stepping Stone Foundation provided preschooling to me. I spoke little English at age 4 and would had been unprepared for Kindergarten. We were not able to afford any private education, thankfully, ASSF was established to help students like me.
