I first got involved with Brighton Center when I requested an Every Child Succeeds home visitor when I was at the health department on a WIC. Since enrolling in Every Child Succeeds, I have utilized many Brighton Center services including the Center for Employment Training, Financial Services and I have utilized the Food Pantry and Clothing Closet while going to school. My daughter was also at Bright Days Child Development Center the whole time I attended CET. I also did an internship at Women's Recovery Center when I was a student at CET.
After Graduation of CET I then got a job and started participated in the Individual Development Account program to begin saving. Through Brighton Center I was able to gain a debt-free education which I received certification in the Business and Computer Technology skill division of CET. I have also gotten to a better point of self-sufficiency through all the help and support of Brighton Center.
Through my experience at Brighton Center I have learned a lot about myself. I learned I can overcome things as long as I work hard. I can make my life better and my children's lives better by getting support from Brighton Center. I have also learned that everybody could use help with their lives and it is ok to except it. I am most impressed by all the wonderful people that are involved in Brighton Center- it truly felt like a community of support and I am forever grateful for all the help I received from all their employees and volunteers.
I feel most proud about my Brighton Center experience when I am asked to share my story with others and share how my life has gotten better through the help of all their services. Brighton Center has enriched my life by giving me an education, financial support, skills to help me be a better parent, budgeting skills, and helping me become a homeowner.
My life has changed a lot since I first came into Brighton Center services. I am a homeowner now, I have a job, I am certified in Excel and learned Microsoft office which has excelled my computer skills and I am a successful mother of two beautiful girls.
