DOESN'T TAKE MUCH SEARCHING TO FIND PEOPLE LIVING IN THIRD-WORLD CONDITIONS RIGHT HERE IN OUR COMMUNITY, HORRY COUNTY HAS 694 DOCUMENTED HOMELESS KID'S
UP UNTIL I SIGNED THE LEASE LAST JULY, THE CLOSEST SHELTER FOR A HOMELESS PREGNANT TEEN WAS 130 MILES, WE HAD GIRLS GIVING BIRTH IN THE WOODS LITERALLY. NOBODY WANTED TO STEP UP FOR THE HOMELESS GIRLS, STILL STEREO-TYPING THE" TROUBLE" SHE HAD BECOME. I HAD NO CHOICE BUT TO TAKE ACTION, USING MY PERSONAL MONIES AND RESOURCES TO MAKE A HOUSE A HOME FOR THESE GIRLS AND THERE INFANTS. BEING A GOOD MOTHER IS ONE OF THE TOUGHEST JOBS IN THE WORLD, AND ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE WHEN YOU ARE YOUNG, HOMELESS, AND WITHOUT FAMILY. TEENAGE MOTHERS AND PREGNANT TEENS WHO COME TO HC TEENS AND INFANTS OFTEN HAVE NO CHILD-RAISING SKILLS, NO ROLE MODELS TO GUIDE THEM THROUGH THE DIFFICULT TASK OF MOTHERHOOD. YET WHAT THEY LACK IN RESOURCES IS ALMOST ALWAYS OFFSET IN DETERMINATION. OUR DEDICATION TAKES THEM AND MOTIVATES THEM TO WORK HARD TOWARD ACHIEVING INDEPENDENCE.WE HELP THEM CREATE A PLAN FOR THE FUTURE WHILE GETTING THEM THERE MEDICAL CARE, PRENATAL CARE,AND EDUCATION. WHEN God BRINGS A CAUSE LIKE THIS TO YOU, YOU GO FORWARD WITH ALL YOUR HEART AND SOUL, THERE IS NO STOPPING ME WITH God ON MY SIDE.
