XavierRoxy discovered she was pregnant while living in a shelter in Everett.  She enrolled in ChildStrive’s Parents as Teachers program during her pregnancy at the guidance of a Housing Hope Case Manager. Roxy and her son worked with ChildStrive’s Parent Educator, Alicia, while in the program.  She appreciated the information that Alicia brought to her regarding childhood development, especially material related to meal planning and which foods are appropriate for a toddler. “Roxy has natural mothering skills.  She’s a good mom and is committed to providing a good life for her son,” stated Alicia. Roxy tells others in her situation, “call ChildStrive, Parents as Teachers is a great program, I don’t know what I would have done without them.”
