Some of our Success Stories
Christina - RISE UP Parent ParticipantElmcor’s Strengthening Families Program has been a great experience for my family and me. I grew up as an only child this experience made it difficult when I had my two children. Prior to my participating in the program, my family didn’t understand my challenges in being a mom to my children. While attending the program I interacted with other moms who like me also had multiple children and had similar challenges. (more…)
Jason - Recreation ParticipantElmcor is a fun place to come after school. I have been going to Elmcor since the 8th grade and I keep coming back to spend time with my friends and play basketball. I really like the basketball coaches. They teach us that it is important to work hard on and off the basketball court. They also care about our schoolwork, and they don't let us play basketball if we get bad reports from school. (more…)
Elmcor - Eustace“I come out so I am not home all day alone, watching TV. My family spends time with me and helps me on the weekends. Everyone at the Center makes me feel comfortable and we eat lunch together like lifelong friends would and sit and talk. On Wednesdays, the men’s group meets and they offer me support and encouragement.” (more…)
