“I didn’t know it at the time, but the day I came to the shelter with my kids was the day my life began again. The staff at DASO were so good with them, and with me too! They not only helped us through that difficult time but they helped me discover my independence and strength. I will always be so grateful.”

“Believe in Me gave my kids the confidence they needed to make changes in their own lives. It also gave me emotional support for my struggles as a single mom.”
