The NORWESCAP Head Start staff provided me with not only resources and referrals to assist me in changing my life, but were also generous in the amountof emotional support that they provided. I am glad that the NORWESCAP staffhelped me to take the needed steps to change my life, or I fear my daughterswould have followed in my footsteps.No one should live a life that I was living.My life is very different now, I believe in myself.
