Anna’s Story

Anna was preparing for an exciting time for her family. Her three-year-old son was thriving, and the due date for her second child to be born was fast approaching.

But tragedy struck when Anna’s apartment caught fire. The family was safe, but they lost everything. Less than a day later, Anna gave birth to her second son..

Anna didn’t know where to turn. When she was in the hospital, her nurses recommended Parent Pals.

With help from Parent Pals, Anna and her family were able to move into their new home one week after the fire. The Parent Pals team helped Anna and her three-year-old find a therapist to support them through their trauma following the fire.

Today, Anna and her sons are happy and healthy, thanks to regular home visits from their Parent Pals worker.
