Stories of Impact

Meet Stephanie

Stephanie’s first priority is making sure her children, Jazlene and Josavian, are happy and safe. As a working mom, finding child care during the after-school hours was a struggle. Thanks to The Village’s free after-school program at her children’s school, she didn’t have to worry— Jazlene and Josavian are now able to get homework help, enjoy enrichment activities and make new friends in a safe, nurturing environment.
