BRIANA FINDS FAMILY AT NEIGHBORHOOD ZONE

“The Family Center helped me so much."

Give to United Way

Your gift keeps Marylanders in homes, helps kids in school, and provides access to healthy food and jobs that pay the bills.

Briana was a member of the United Way Neighborhood Zone in Brooklyn’s first high school graduation class of teen parents. Today, she’s a nursing student at Baltimore City Community College, a certified medication technician and certified nursing assistant, and works for a company that uses plasma to make medications.

“The Family Center helped me so much. Without it, I would’ve missed a lot of days of school trying to figure out care for my daughter. My attendance improved and now I’m attending BCCC for my nursing degree.

I miss the Family Center teachers—we really had a close bond. I still call Miss Emily if I need help or guidance, and she’s there for me. It really is like a family.”
