“When I first met Jessie and all the other people at the Family Center, I had nothing,” says Britney. “I was young and selfish and I wasn’t ready to be a mom. But when I finally realized I was going to lose my son if I didn’t smarten up, I started listening to Jessie’s coaching, and it all started to click. I loved Bryson, and Jessie helped me realize I needed to grow up and take responsibility for both of us.” “In only a few months,” Britney continues, “with quality child care for Bryson and all kinds of coaching and parenting support for me, I learned important job and life skills. I got my driver’s license, a car, and even got an apartment for Bryson and me to live in. My parents were very proud of me. And I was proud of myself.”
