Meet Jessica and her 2-year-old son Jordan…

Jessica grew up with parents who were drug addicts – and abusive. Pregnant at age 15, she moved in with her gang-member boyfriend and found herself in an abusive situation again – to the point of being hospitalized. Saying a prayer, Jessica found Hope House online and entered our GED and Mentoring Programs.

Today she has earned her GED and is attending Parenting and Healthy Relationships classes through our Mentoring Program. With the continued support of her Mentor and a job offer from a company in our Business Partnership Program, Jessica has a full-time job and has been promoted.

Today she lives in her own apartment where she and her son are thriving. Even more exciting: Jessica has recently become an amazing leader in the Mentoring Program, regularly reaching out to new teen moms who seem shy or disengaged. We are so proud to see Jessica come full circle!
