Jennifer’s ex-boyfriend held a gun to her head when she was six months pregnant. The abuse had been going on for a while, but that was finally the moment she knew she had to get out. She waited until her son was born because she was completely on her own with no family to turn to. She fled Las Vegas with her baby, $50 and the cheapest bus ticket out of state – which was to Flagstaff. Some quick luck landed her at a shelter in Phoenix who referred her to Fresh Start Women’s Foundation for counseling and career support. Jennifer and her son are doing great now, thanks to her perseverance and strength – but there are so many like her that never make it that far.
Mother’s Day is an important time of year at Fresh Start Women’s Foundation. We value moms in the highest regard and know they need to be taken care of. We believe that if you support the mom — with counseling, career services, legal assistance, higher education — you support not only that woman, but her family as well. If we can keep our moms confident, positive, and moving forward in their lives, their entire family will be impacted in a positive way.
