|A few of the mothers at Angel House with their Mother’s Day gifts
There are 13 mothers currently at HAC’s Angel House shelter, all of whom are taking steps to improve their lives, not only for themselves, but for their children.
As they work towards this goal, one anonymous donor showed her support for them by giving each client a Mother’s Day gift bag filled with chocolates and a note of encouragement, as well as two sets of flowers for the shelter.
Two days before they received those gifts, one of the Angel House clients spoke about what being a parent means to her. “I love kids, number one,” she said. “And I have always wanted to be a mom.”
With three children of her own, she has fulfilled that dream, understanding that her role “is just giving more love to this next generation.”
Having spent eight months at Angel House, she is looking forward to doing that in a home of her own once she leaves shelter. She wants “housing, but most of all, a safe place for my kids to grow up and be with their mom,” she said.
