“My son was taken to foster care. It was a wake-up call that I needed to straighten up. They helped me do something I never thought I’d be able to do — get my son back. They’ve literally changed my life.”

Kassandra, Participant, Parenting Classes

“Champions for Children has helped me tremendously. They helped me with parenting courses; plus diapers, wipes, and toys to give my son. They’re helping me give him stuff while I can’t.”

Donnie, Participant, Parenting Classes

“I was working, pregnant, and had a seven-year-old. I came to Baby University — it made me a better mother. And I have someone I can reach out to if something goes wrong or if I need help.”
