The last year really pushed me to adapt to the changes thrown at me by surprise. I got laid off from work, a surprise pregnancy, and had to look for a new job to qualify for maternity leave. Being able to join Healthy Beginnings was a blessing.

Being a Peer Advocate has been a formative experience. I learned how to be an active and useful participant in my community. I take great pride in helping community members navigate obscure systems of aid, as well as providing services to folks who, like myself, may experience barriers elsewhere.

Everyone has been able to access the services provided by The Stop through the advocacy office even during COVID, community members have gained information they wouldn’t be able to without the office being open.
