A Few Words From Our Participants

“ Jessie’s gave my son a place to live and grow up-somewhere to call home-without Jessie’s I wouldn’t know where to go” – Participant

Participant

Jessie’s Center has given me a lot of help and support in ways of school, daycare, clothing and food. The school and daycare have been a huge part of my life at Jessie’s. Their daycare program, the Parent-Child Centre, gave me the chance to finish my education, while having the peace of mind knowing that my daughter is just a few steps away and is being taken care of. Allowing me to focus on my school work and finishing my credits.” 

Paticipant

“I give my whole heart out to PCC because without them I would have never been able to finish my education. God bless every single person who has worked or volunteered in there; thank you so much for taking care of my daughter so that I could obtain my education.” – Participant
