Meet Janeika

July 10, 2019

When Janeika moved to St. Ann’s in July 2018, she was a mother to a toddler and pregnant with her second child. Feeling lost and unsupported, she questioned how she was going to care for her soon to be growing family.

“I felt like I was spiraling and didn’t have control over my life.”

Through faithful participation in St. Ann’s programming, Janeika has embraced every opportunity offered to her. Now parenting her two children, Janeika attends daily GED Prep classes at St. Ann’s while her son attends a school for children with special needs. Janeika has dreams of opening a hair and beauty salon. She is already gaining hands-on experience by designing and crafting wigs and styling other residents’ hair. Her work is receiving rave reviews!

“I’m working on obtaining my GED and starting my own business. Since moving to St. Ann’s, I have more balance.”
