I first heard about Possibilities through my Family Advocate at Educare, and I attended the PIP celebration. The next year, my mom, brother and sister attended PIP. I have seen them all benefit from being a part of Possibilities. My brother was shot a few years ago. As a result, he is now partially blind and in a wheelchair. It was helpful for him to meet and be around other people to help him come out of his shell. My mom doesn’t speak English fluently and it was helpful for her to find a supportive community that accepted her. Possibilities accepts people the way they are, and that is powerful.
The work I do at Educare has made great progress for the success of young children, but my neighborhood still struggles. I have lived my neighborhood for 5 years, and it is a dangerous place. Possibilities is always there to help the community get better. Possibilities is a great program to help our kids get out of trouble. Through my work with Possibilities, I believe I will make a real difference in my neighborhood.
