"So often when you have lived a life of struggles and instability, you have no long term goals. Your vision of the future is very limited and often doesn't feel obtainable. We want more for our families! We want them to be able to dream and achieve! With the support and encouragement of Advocates for Education, our moms are starting to believe they deserve more and can see a path that leads beyond survival. Thank you to JoAnna and Shellee for giving us this opportunity!"
-Julie Randall, Executive Director, Family Promise of Hendricks County
