My name is Melodie and I’ve been part of the Focus PEARL program since 2018. I am a single mom of three boys: 12, 10, & 3.

I’m going to school for an Integrative Health Professions of Applied Science Associates degree (AKA a Holistic Health degree).
PEARL makes this possible because they offer me food and gas gift cards, they help me obtain tools needed for school, and they also help me when something happens to my vehicle. When an emergency comes up, they are also able to help provide assistance.
What I like best about the program, is that not only do they help provide financial and physical assistance, but they mentor me. They offer positive role models, spiritual guidance, and friendship. I love and appreciate the opportunity to work with the awesome ladies at PEARL!
