I am 18 years old. The Memphis Police Department (MPD) transported me to LINCS after I had a fight with my mother; she had put me out the house. I was so scared, confused, ashamed, jobless, broke, and pregnant. Ms. Taylor, who I choose to call mommy, helped me turn my life completely around. The LINCS program taught me how to forgive and love again. IOP at Grace House of Memphis taught me how to manage my sobriety one day at a time. The financial literacy class taught me how to budget and save money. The parent classes taught me how to be loving, caring and be a proactive mother before I give birth to my son. The anger management classes taught me how to manage my anger. I can go on, and on, and on. When I graduated from the LINCS program, Ms. Taylor helped me find a place to live. She also went furniture and car shopping with me. Soon I was financially stabled to take care of my unborn child and myself.
