Young Women's Christian Assn. of El Paso Texas YWCA
November 30, 2010
I had came back into El Paso from Chicago. I was bouncing from friend to friend's house and I even slept in my car pregnant with my three girls ages 9,6, and 4. I first heard about the YWCA TLC from my sister who had been a participant at the shelter before. When I first applied one obstacle was in my way, an outstanding warrant that I was not aware of. I was informed of the warrant by the staff at the YWCA TLC. I first procrastinated in getting it resolved but knowing that the warrant was keeping me from getting into the program I decided to go to the sheriff department. After going throught that process I returned to the YWCA TLC to update my information and my application. I was then accepted into the program. I have been a participant in the program since May 2010. I have participated in the Life Skills classes, attend case management, and parenting classes, consumer credit counseling session. Day care as been provided to me as well as a participant in the program. My children participate in the YZones activities, girls scout, and tutoring that is available at the YWCA TLC. Since being here at the YWCA TLC I have found that I am more motivated and a clearer mind in regards what I want to do with my life.
