Stephanie grew up with a mom, who flew back and forth to the Philippines, and an alcoholic father. The household was confusing and unstable. She became pregnant at sixteen and her parents couldn’t reconcile the situation with their faith. So her mom dropped her off at a child protective services. She gave birth to her son while in foster care. Stephanie’s openness and persistence are a blessing to her boys. She was able to find a school for her oldest son and her youngest son is enrolled in on-campus daycare while she takes nursing classes. The Launch Pad community has been equipping her with parenting classes, community nights, budgeting tips, school scholarships and a network of hope builders.


Please consider helping us provide supplemental rent for Stephanie and her boys as an off-site resident as she finishes school.
