Darrionna’s Story

Darrionna is a single mother of two children. Most mornings, she wakes up tired after a restless sleep. The stresses of providing for her family seem to always catch up with her at night – and sometimes those stresses bring her to tears.

For Darrionna, quality care for her children never seemed attainable. When searching for a place to care for her two-­year old child, each place she called was out of reach financially.

Watch Darrionna discuss her despairing search for care for her children:

Because Guardian Angel Settlement Association provides service based on family income, Darrionna qualified for childcare services. It was the last option for Darrionna to provide quality care for her children while she worked to provide for them, and Guardian Angel Settlement Association gave her the relief she needed.

Darrionna is sleeping better these days, and she is a better mom because of it.
