Ashley’s Foster Care Story

“I am thankful to have my daughter back home and my family all together again,” says Mary, referring to Ashley, her seven-year-old daughter.

Ashley entered foster care two years ago due to neglect in her biological home. Her mom was struggling to meet the demands of having a daughter with mental health needs. Due to her behaviors, Ashley was moved several times while in foster care. Her mother was with her every step of the way and worked hard to learn how to provide the care Ashley needed. With Mary’s hard work and persistence, Ashley was able to return to her mother’s care. She is now home with her family, happily adjusted and doing well in school.

Karen’s DREAM Story

Karen was determined to be the first person in her family to go to college, but was struggling with her classes, and lacked the guidance and support from her family that so many children receive during their adolescent years.

Fortunately, one of Karen’s teachers recommended the Dreams Realized through Education and Mentoring (DREAM) program at Vista Maria. It was at her first DREAM session that Karen met Lisa, a DREAM mentor. Lisa tutored Karen, helped with her homework, and talked with her about boys, friends, what Karen wanted to study at college, and her future aspirations. Karen finally had the support and motivation she needed to overcome the odds.
