My name is Robin, and I am grateful to be a part of the Focus PEARL Program since 2016. I have one amazing son whom I am blessed with…9-year-old Ryder David- the Warrior Knight.

I am wrapping up my last class of grad school at Colorado Christian University. I will earn a Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at the end of this month after 7.5 grueling years in college as a working single-mom managing through a pandemic. Finally at the finish line!

PEARL makes this possible simply by showing love, kindness, encouragement, and support. Not to mention, the food cards in which my family has been receiving has helped immensely in sustaining us throughout my higher education advancement. Plus, the kids mentoring, car clinics, financial planning, counseling, and ongoing guidance–I am forever thankful. What I like best about the program is the folks who are supporting the cause. PEARL holds a very special place in my heart. So much so that I am now creating non-profit programs to support marginalized groups in case management needs through an 8-dimensional wellness program. Our community is fortunate to have PEARL.
