Aaliyah gets the parenting support she needed

Aaliyah gets the parenting support she needed

Aaliyah is a new mother and wants the best possible start and future for her young daughter. Aaliyah was diagnosed with conduct disorder as a child and is determined to provide the best environment for her child to reduce the risk of her daughter following this diagnosis. She is a domestic abuse survivor and initially was living with her mother, despite their tumultuous relationship, as she has few other local supports.


Aaliyah enrolled in our Nurturing Parenting class to provide her with parenting skills and knowledge. She participated the weekly class and completed assignments to successfully graduate from the program. Aaliyah was also connected with our Family Partner program to support in accessing community resources. As a result, Aaliyah was able to secure an apartment and find a full-time job, working from home so she can still spend time with her infant.


‘This course has helped me be more caring & patient, and learn how to balance my responsibilities – all making me a better parent.’ – Aaliyah.
