Where would I be without the help I received from Maggie's place? It a scary thought, I am sure I would not be where I am today. Before Maggie's place I was very afraid, alone and lost I had no plan and had no idea what to do or how I would become a mother. After all this was my first child and I had absolutely no support from the father, I needed a community of loving support to make it though an very uncertain time in my life. If I did not have the enormous support I got from Maggie's Place I would not have just recently graduated from college on June 16th 2012, the same year my son was born. Everyone told me I would not finish school, but thanks to the wonderful women of Maggie's Place who gave me the time, love and courage I needed to help me to finish my goals. I was able to save a big chunk of money while I lived there which helped me to become independent and get an apartment of my own. I now work full time and I am still continuing my education. I learn many life skills in the weekly classes held at the house such as budgeting, cooking, and baby care. I learned a lot about myself though the counselor that came to the house each week. For example, I learned how the recognize a healthy relationship, the abuse cycle and how the know if you are in one, but most importantly I learned how to respect myself and my feelings as well as how to get along with others. I received all the baby supplies I needed, including a crib and all the clothes I will need till he is one year old. Thanks to Maggie's place I have become the best mother I could every be!
