SERVING THE NEEDS OF THE MOM AND HER CHILD!
When Lovely entered into the program, she was unsure, fearful, and lacked confidence which led to a high stress and low structured environment. Her son who was 3-years-old then, was shy and not speaking. Lovely desired to be an Register Nurse but that dream seemed distant and far away as she works two jobs. It was hard for her to see how she could pursue such a goal. With the help of her mentor and Program Director, she was able to build up her confidence within her self to become the mom she needed to be as well as the woman that God purposed her to be. The program was able to connect her son with a speech therapist that helped her son
Since Lovely has been in the program, she is now going to college and will be obtaining a degree as a Registered Nurse. Her son is speaking and praying for meals in the class. HFM has helped her build confidence within herself. She has established structure in her life as well as her son's. She now believes that she can accomplish anything that she desires.
HFM has not only helped me financially, but they have also helped me become a better mom, a better person, and to make the right decisions for me and my 5-year-old son. Because of HFM, I have become more aware of what will be the best for our future. I am now back in school for my Associate’s degree. I don’t know what I would have done without them and their very helpful advice. I want to say thank you for all the help and support. I really do appreciate it.

WHAT MADE THE DIFFERENCE!
While pregnant, Emily did an extensive Google search on programs that could assist her in any way and she found Hearts for Moms. She remembers feeling like discovering HFM was an answer to prayer as it gave her confidence to continue her pregnancy, raise her daughter and continue pursuing her education. Emily and her newly born daughter, became participants in April 2019.
When Emily entered HFM she was at a pretty dark place in life. She felt hopeless as she had no idea how she was going to raise a baby and continue to thrive as a college student majoring in Biology/ Neuroscience at FAU. We are so proud of her, as she has been able to maintain her 4.0 GPA and her goal is to get her master’s degree to become a Physician Assistant. In HFM, Emily feels like she has found an extended family with her mentor and the other moms/mentors. Her daughter is loved on weekly, whether it be passing her around the room for baby cuddles, or sending Emily home with an armful of diapers and wipes.
I have found a community that supports my decision to raise my daughter. Hearts for Moms helps me meet my financial goals, enabling me to pay my expenses, support my daughter, and pursue my education.
