Luna – Mother’s First is an organization with diverse staff members with different backgrounds. We pride ourselves on having diversity, accountability, and transparency for our clients. My own experience as someone who was a child of someone who has dependency issues has given me the insight to provide the best care to the mothers and children in our program.
Cecilia – In general, I am an extrovert who loves to help people and interact with different people. I also personally understand what it is like to struggle within poverty and violent upholds, so I would like to shed light within each client’s life and bring a positive influence to help them make the needed changes and get their lives back on track. .
Pakou – As someone who previously worked in an outpatient setting, I’ve learned to appreciate how the Mother’s First Program allows me to see and interact with each client within the community.
Rochelle – As a nurse, I am not always able to see a patient for longer periods of time. Through Mother’s First, I’m given a better platform to build relationships with and see the long-term success of each mother. Mother’s First allows me to play an integral part in helping others achieve a better story and see the long-term positive effect our work leaves on clients, families, and friends.
Kourtney – Currently, I am six years sober. As someone who has personally experienced homelessness and an unstable job history due to substance abuse, I want others to be able to achieve the long-term sobriety that has been achieved in my own life.
Kadija – As someone who loves working with kids and moms, the work I do with Mother’s First gives me a lot of hope for future generations.
