"I was a non-traditional student pursuing my nursing degree at a local community college. When I wasn't studying, I was a mother, juggling cooking, cleaning, reading, and preparing my children for their classes. It was very difficult, but it was our only way out of poverty."

"In 2014, I was just beginning my journey to get a college education. At the young age of 17, I found out I was pregnant. My son is now 5 years old, and I am a single mom providing for him on my own. B.A.B.E.S. is amazing because all of the services they provide are at no cost. The friendly staff at B.A.B.E.S. has encouraged me to accomplish my goals and reduced a huge financial burden."
