A story of life change
Karmyn* spent her high school years bouncing between foster families, relatives, and shelters. Karmyn connected with Embrace at 18 for guidance on housing options, but left the residential program she enrolled in when she became pregnant. She moved in with her sister at age 19, just before giving birth to a daughter. When the baby was just days old, Karmyn found herself struggling. While her transient, disjointed past left her without the support of a healthy family or community, she was able to connect back with Embrace.
Embrace provided “First Apartment Kit” supplies to help outfit Karmyn’s home. Through the Facebook group “The Loop:By Embrace” deliveries of diapers and baby equipment arrived from other members of the community. Embrace volunteers transported Karmyn to work and to pick up groceries. With some guidance, she was able to start a new job, get a photo ID, and find a daycare for her daughter. She’s currently working on her GED. Karmyn is a loving mom, eager to create a happy, healthy home for herself and her daughter. With the support of Embrace, she is well on her way.
