While a resident at the Northwest Center, I was able to continue my college studies, while provide a safe upbringing for my son. We came into the home when my son was just six weeks old and we left when he was about 14 months old, two months after I graduated college and was leaving for my first corporate job. The NWC helped make sure I was prepared with a safe place to live, great daycare, easily accessible public transportation, it aligned me with professional and career mentors from Georgetown University, helped me learn the importance of being very disciplined with healthy eating and cooking habits, while also making sure that I used every resource that was available to me. The NWC linked me up with scholarships, stipends and any other resource that could give me any kind of competitive edge towards succeeding against the odds. I thank God that I was able to get into that program and I don't even want to imagine if it did not exist for me and my son. This is an incredible place and home for women and children who are in a stage of transition and need additional help and guidance through life's adversities from making poor life choices. The Northwest Center gives a woman hope and helps her feel like there is a new day coming.
