Success Stories

Brighton Center at its very core is a community based agency. The people in our community and their needs are the driving force behind the work we do.

Every day, Brighton Center works to engage all members of the community from young children to seniors so that real change can become reality. Every one of them has a story worth sharing... the following are just a few.

Georgina’s Journey

Every new parent can use a little extra help, and thanks to a friend who recommended the Every Child Succeeds (ECS) program, I found an incredible support system! My daughter and I started it when she was only one month old. The tools and knowledge that my Home Visitor gave me were key to making my motherhood journey the best experience. Because of ECS, my daughter met all of her growth and psychosocial development objectives. Learning new things about my daughter’s behavior at each stage of her growth has helped me be more aware of her needs as a mother.

Demetria’s Journey

I learned about Center for Employment Training (CET) in 2014 when I was in high school from my dad. He graduated from the program and tried to convince me then to also go to CET, but I ended up going to a university for nursing, where I discovered it just wasn’t for me. It was also too expensive.

Rita’s Journey

Brighton Recovery Center (BRC) taught me to love myself again. They showed me that I am worth so much more than I thought I was. On June 15th, 2018, I entered BRC after I was ordered to be there by the Department of Corrections. Initially, I did not want to be there. It was only after hearing that a close friend had passed from an overdose that I felt like I needed to be there. I had to change for myself. From that day forward, I started working on the steps to fight addiction.

Terrie’s Journey

My life now is beautiful beyond measure. Brighton Center showed me the path there. If it wasn't for Brighton Center, there is no doubt in my mind I would not be alive today.

Addiction ruined my life. I was born into a long line of substance abuse. My mother left when I was two due to addiction, and my father was never around because he was an alcoholic. My grandmother raised me, and we had limited resources.

Alea’s Journey

I learned about Northern Kentucky Scholar House through a close friend who completed the program a few years prior. She shared with me her story and how much support she received, which inspired me to want to be a part of it. She knew I wanted to return to school, but I needed help like she did. Being a single mother trying to work and support myself and my children is very tough, to say the least. Having Early Scholars Child Development Center on-site felt like home because it was on the property, which brought me more security as a mother. Because of this, I was truly able to build relationships with the teachers and staff.
