When “Kate” called the Crisis Nursery she needed a safe place for her daughter to stay due to a domestic violence situation. Shortly after “Kate” began using the Crisis Nursery, she learned that she was pregnant. While working with Crisis Nursery Intake Staff and with Crisis Nursery’s Family Empowerment Social Worker, “Kate” established a plan to safely leave the relationship. Since relocating to safe, stable housing, “Kate” found a new job that allows her to support her family as a single mom. She also sought treatment at Crider to address her mental health needs. Today, “Kate” has goals and a new outlook on life. Her long-term goal is to return to school to obtain her bachelor’s degree in social work so she can help moms like she was once helped.
