Teen mom in crises
Organized by: Kristen Garder
Hey guys ... My name is Kristen And I'm 19 . I had my son Jamir at 16.. since I've had him life's been tough but I managed to do my best. As of 17 I graduated high school and Since then I've worked for youth advocacy groups as well as bakeries. I would love to further my education and get a degree in criminal justice. unfortunately when I was living in California I struggled to obtain my goals I had no family and no support. I now live in Georgia in a domestic violence shelter. I'm here because I thought I can finally trust some one I was in a relationship with for over a year.. Once we moved in together is when the abuse started. It went from throwing me into the wall to choking me unconscious in front of my son. I left EVERYTHING Behind. I took my son and ran. Left my car cloths and documentation. And it's been extremely hard to catch up. I would love to fund raise enough money to potentially put up a deposit and first months rent for a apartment I'm now working at an Olive Garden. And I know with a little over time I can pay the bills. I desperately need help not only for my self but for my son. I'm hard working and dedicated to making my sons life right. So he dosnt have to see me struggle. I grew up in the foster care system so I have no family what so ever to lean on. We will appreciate anything even if it's a prayer !!! I thank you for reading my story and taking teatime out of your day to help me. Thank you again be blessed !
