The desire to start AngelEyes Maternity Home came from my own life experiences. Growing up the ninth of ten children to a single mother and living in poverty I was shy, had very little self-esteem. I was pregnant by the time I reached the age of 17. I felt alone, frightened and ashamed. I had no idea what I was going to do. With no guidance or support I thought the only solution was to run away and hide.
After living off and on with other people I eventually became homeless sleeping in a hospital undergoing renovation for several weeks before I could move into a women’s shelter. This is the moment my life would be changed. Located in Lowell, Massachusetts this shelter helped me to learn the skills I needed to become a better person and a good mother. I obtained my GED, earned a certificate in Secretarial and was awarded government assisted housing. The shelter helped to change my way of thinking, build self-confidence, helped me to set and achieve goals. Most importantly I developed an urge and desire to want more and more out of life. I continued to educate myself by obtaining additional certifications and a Bachelor of Science in Information Technology Management increasing my ability to secure better jobs. Several years later I was paying my rent without government assistance, only three years after that I purchased my first home.
