D. learned about Early Childhood Education when a Catholic Charities employee saw through social media that D. was pregnant and contacted her to share information about its Early Head Start Prenatal Program. D. agreed to participate and met with a prenatal home visitor.
D. felt that God worked in mysterious ways and often uses others to reach out to those in need.
After having her baby, D. continued with Early Childhood Education’s Home Based Program, which includes home visits on a weekly basis and group socializations. D. said that for her, as a first-time mom, the support was greatly appreciated. It filled a void for her, she said.
D. would tell other moms to join the program and learn new ways to interact with their babies and have a support system.
“I didn’t know [the ECE Programs] would be such a big part of my life,” she said.
