Helped me become exactly who I wanted to become.
“In 2013, I was a 19 year-old single mother to a one-year old little boy named Elliot, a student, and a waitress. Needless to say, I was confused, scared, and honestly – broke. My mother helped me out a lot but she had to work and I needed to go to school, meaning I needed to find childcare that wasn’t going to cost me an arm and a leg. By the grace of God, I ran into an old friend one day that I hadn’t seen in a while and she told me about Angels’ Place. She had told me that if I was in school there was a childcare center that was free of charge; I would just have to attend weekly parent meetings and volunteer three hours of my time to do things around the center. Naturally I was skeptical, but I had to find out for myself.
Upon walking in the door, I felt an immediate calmness. I loved everything about the building, their values, and the attention given to the children. I knew, for a fact, that Angels’ Place is where I wanted my son to be while I furthered my education. Angels’ Place was never just a daycare to me, the amazing staff became a part of my family; I have never met a group of people so invested in helping other parents, or for that matter – people in general, better themselves. No matter the issue, the staff at Angels’ Place was, and is, ready to step up and help you become exactly who you want to become.
Angels’ Place has thought of every single moment in the lives of these mothers that may be difficult, and has made them that much easier. From their interactive curriculum, to their family style lunches, Elliot has learned so much – both educationally and emotionally. By the time he graduated from Angels’ Place he could count to 100 and has the compassion that I aspire to have. Throughout the five years that I have as a mother, Angels’ Place has helped me in more ways than I can count, and I know that if it wasn’t for this organization I would absolutely not be where I am today.” – Danielle
