Changing For Two: A Mother's Dedication To Her Child

Updated: Jul 1, 2022

Summer came to Toby’s place fleeing a life of addiction, loneliness, and pain. At six months pregnant, she knew something had to change so she could provide for her future daughter. After dropping out of high school three different times, she became addicted to drugs, was in an unhealthy relationship with her boyfriend, and found herself pregnant at 19 with no place to live.

Since coming to Toby’s Place, Summer has grown and changed in so many ways! She is graduating from high school the first week of June, learning to care for her six month-old daughter, and actively working as a barista at the Oliver Gospel Roastery. Summer says without Toby’s Place, she would likely be dead and definitely would still be living on the streets.
