My Michael House Story

My name is Jenny. If you saw me with my young son on the bus, at the mall or the park you would see a young mom just like any other. In most ways I am like any other mom. I live in an apartment, drop my son off at daycare and go to school. I have a great story and it isn’t over yet. I plan to be a lawyer someday.

There was a time when I wasn’t sure if that could happen. Let me tell you about how I got the help I needed along the way.

This story begins at a pregnancy place for young girls in Cambridge. I started living in Cambridge at the pregnancy house, had my son, but was still having issues with my abusive partner. I had to figure something out. A nice support worker helped me look into Michael House.

I am originally from Guelph and all my family lives there plus the move would give me some distance from my ex. It seemed like a good opportunity. I got in contact with Michael House and they met me right away and offered me a place in their new Supportive Housing program. I was one of the first women to live there. They were super friendly, kind and accommodating to my son and me. This looked like it might be the change I needed.
