Alexa initially enrolled into the Family Support Program not really having a clear understanding of how it would benefit her and her family. Two things she wanted to improve were her health and her ability to understand the language her children spoke; English. Before the stay at home order, Alexa was enrolled in ESL classes and had joined walking groups to increase her physical activity. She is proud to share that she has continued to practice her English and continues to walk. Alexa says: “When I think of MEND, I think of a friend who won’t let her family starve, won’t let her children go to sleep cold, and will always be there for her when she’s ready to get her strength and intelligence in action.” You are that friend to MEND and the people we support, thank you.
