Life is busy for Loren with five children under the age of six and a full time job, yet she remains amazingly cool, calm and collected. Although Loren held several jobs as she moved into adulthood, she was mostly a stay-at-home mom, with limited resources and support during a rocky time. When InterAct of Wake County recommended that Loren and the children contact the Mission, Loren stepped out in faith and was welcomed into our program.
Transitioning into a structured routine was both the biggest challenge and the greatest reward for Loren and the kids. “As a mom,” reflects Loren quietly, “it’s been challenging, but everyone has been really helpful. My children have grown, they are expressing themselves better. They’ve always been loving but they are not as shy as before. It’s great to see them thrive.”
Watch Loren’s story and hear what she has in store for the future.
