The simplest answers have the greatest effect.
Meet Makayla When Makayla found out she was pregnant with her 2nd child at age 17, she felt scared, worried and most of all, isolated. Without the support of her family, she turned to the Park Heights Family Support Center.
She took classes in order to get her G.E.D.. She also studied nutrition so that she could make certain she had a healthy pregnancy. After a year of classes at the center, she earned her G.E.D. and enrolled at Baltimore City Community College. Makayla has maintained a 3.2 G.P.A. since her attendance at BCCC. She is now looking into the possibility of attending The Johns Hopkins School of Nursing in the fall. She went on a field trip to the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing that was arranged by the Park Heights Family Support Center. This trip allowed Makayla to tour the school, and they provided her with information as to how to enroll into the program.
Today, Makayla has her own apartment with her children who are flourishing. She enjoys coming back to the center to give updates on her progress. With the help of tutoring, mentoring and guidance from the Park Heights Family Support Center, Makayla now understands how sometimes the simplest answers can have the greatest effect.
