My son’s father had substance abuse problems, and I had become codependent on him. I made poor choices because of this it ended up I was homeless with my son.
New Beginnings classes were so beneficial to me, they accepted me for the flawed person I was when I was homeless and taught me how to live a strong life. I worked towards getting a job, I was baptized and things just got better as I decided to give everything to Christ.
A few months after getting baptized I graduated and was able to get a 2 bedroom home for my son and I. Thanks to what I learned in New Beginnings classes, I am now able to hold a job and live a responsible life. I recently married another graduate from New Beginnings that was also formerly homeless, and we now have a successful life and family with a beautiful 3 month old baby girl.
