Home Visiting Can Help! This is the story of one of our clients: Stephanie, 22 is enrolled in the Home Visiting Program. Two years ago, she was pregnant and homeless. Today, she is the mother of a happy, healthy 15-month-old child. They live together in a transitional housing unit, and Stephanie has many plans for their future. Life has not been easy for her, but she showed her determination to give her son a good start in life by reaching out to and enrolling in the our program. Stephanie wants to not just have a job, but a career. She completed a Licensed Nursing Assistant course in spite of transportation and childcare issues and has gone on to pass her state exam and is receiving her LNA license.
