Hey, my name is Melissa. I’d like you to meet my daughter Crystal and my 3 grandsons. Two go to Verner now and one just graduated to kindergarten. They are growing up learning, playing and thriving. My daughter is raising them well but they struggle with getting by and having enough for the family. I know that when families struggle children struggle too. Children feel that stress. I do what I can to support Crystal, but not all families have a grandparent to help. And even though I help out, sometimes the best support can come from other moms.
That is why Crystal joined the Mothers on the Move (MOMs) group at Verner. She works part-time and is studying for her GED. She gets so much support and encouragement from the other moms in the group! Verner sees and appreciates how parents, and ALL caregivers, strive to do well.
I’m glad we’re part of the Verner community. I am so proud that she joined the MOMs group. Come for a visit and see how Verner supports families and builds community. Read more about Melissa's work in Verner classrooms.
Verner is an equal opportunity provider.
