“Being a teenage mother is a very rigorous task. It takes strength, faith, intelligence, patience, and support. Having community support such is huge as they have felt judged, rejected, and/or feeling as though nobody cares…An outsider may see assistance with diapers as trivial, but to these girls it has been an enormous support. They have all been extremely grateful and some have sighed with relief. They all recognized that someone cared.”
-- Mrs. Cuevas, School Counselor, Hermiston High School
