Welcome to Nurturing Hearts

Nurturing Hearts has changed my attitude completely. I’ve been through so much in my life. If it wasn’t for this program, I don’t know if some of my situations I went through would have came out so smooth and calm. One situation I was in occurred last year. My mother’s fiancé had just got out of jail, no problem with that, I was happy. She started taking money my father gives me for support and started giving it to him and used it for bills and other expenses. I started going without things. Sure I wanted things everyone else wanted, but what 15 or 16-year-old girl wouldn’t? I put myself aside because they said they needed it. I went without so many things to make them happy, so that I wouldn’t seem like I was being selfish.

She didn’t provide the things I needed and didn’t take an interest in anything happening in my life. I could do whatever I wanted and she basically treated me like as if I was an adult. I felt that she didn’t love me. I felt nobody did and still do sometimes. After all of that occurred he ended up still smoking crack and ended up cheating on her with a prostitute. He never paid any bills or contributed. We fell behind in rent. We lived in a big house and had to move because we couldn’t afford it anymore. My mother fell into a depression and left me at home by myself for almost 3 months! I still can’t believe she did that to me, her baby. In the fall of 2007, around the time of my birthday, she didn’t even wish me happy birthday. I don’t ask for much, just the things I need. I try to get most things myself. I didn’t want a party, cake, or shoes. All I wanted was for her and I to sit and eat together at home. She got mad at me a few days later, so I ended up moving with my sister for a few months feeling again unwanted. In the back of my mind, I still feel the same way, but being in this program has taught and shown me so many things. It has taught me that whatever my mom, dad or anyone else has done to me that it isn’t my fault. I have to worry and focus on improving myself. I can’t depend on anyone to help me graduate and better myself. Those are things I will have to want and do on my own. That’s why I recommend this class to all teen girls. It has truly strengthened me and made me a stronger young lady. Graduated Student ay Toni & Guy

Leadership Programs utilize  ‘sister teams’ with a focus on projects that teach leadership skills.  Through this effort, girls will build positive relationships, explore personal strengths and gain self-confidence.

Through the use of role models, and teaching women’s history, Nuturing Hearts works to educate young  girls on the strength of the human spirit.

Self-Esteem

We utilize round table discussions and support classes to review and give guidance concerning numerous peer pressure issues, such as premarital sex, drug/alchohol abuse, teen pregnancy, dropping out of school, smoking, and education on recognizing physical and emotional abuse.
