Give Today. Help Young Women Like Megan!
Megan & Caroline were matched in September 2009. Megan was a resident of Craine House, a work release program for women with pre-school age children. Megan's son was one, born in prison. Caroline helped Megan succeed at Craine House, where she received help finding employment, working towards a GED, improving parenting skills, and gaining self-esteem. Megan successfully completed her time at Craine House, found a job, and has moved out into her own place. She's devoted to her son and very determined to overcome a difficult childhood and past mistakes to build a responsible life. Her mentor has provided her with encouragement and life skills needed to successfully transition into an independent, positive life.
