Review for Fristers, Irvine, CA, USA
Fristers has changed my life in all the best ways! I was fifteen when I had my daughter, and had no clue what I was doing with my life personally, or as a mom. I joined Fristers when my daughter was about 9 years old, and as soon as I walked in they helped me to feel important, and loved. They have always supported me, and I have never once heard an "I told you so" even after making huge mistakes. Fristers helped me to know that I can still have a successful life despite having my daughter at a young age. They encouraged me to finish school, and get my drivers license. They gave me tools and resources to obtain child care, health insurance, and child support. They even provided references so I could get my first job.
The staff and volunteers are so loving, and would do anything to support a young mother. This is my fourth year attending, and I have loved every second. There is still so much to learn, fun to be had, and new friendships to be made. I don't know where I would be without Fristers, but I know my life, and my daughter's would not be as happy or successful without them.
