I had to be a parent at a young age. It was hard and stressful and it led me to drugs. Child protection got involved and I went to the shelter, but a week later I was at Perspectives. The programs here taught me how to communication. I have started back at school for my GED. This is a new start, a new beginning for me.
From foster care to prostitution to drug addiction, Bernice’s life was out of control. She looked out the window of a mental hospital and said to herself I don’t want to be here anymore. Then one day the phone rang and it was Perspectives. Watch what happened next!
See the moving story of one woman fight for her sobriety and her determination to raise her daughters differently. Hear how upon her acceptance into Perspectives Supportive Housing Program, she went from being a street criminal to saying “whatever I have to do from here on out I’m doing it”. Watch a cycle being broken and hope restored.
