I am a mom of a teenage son, who I have been mostly raising on my own for the past 16 years. When my boy was a toddler I wanted to get out and meet other moms and tots. I joined some local community groups and starting doing volunteer work. I became involved with a new young parents organization. I assisted in writing the newsletter, organizing events, parenting workshops and groups. Then with the support and connections I made in the community, I joined forces with 3 other women and started a children’s thrift store. It was child friendly, with a play area for the kids, a coffee bar and resource library for the parents. I am grateful for all the opportunities I was given, I was able to gain skills and better myself, while having my son close by.
