About The Founder

As a child raised in the system I became a teen mom at 15, I came from a abusive home, with parents that abused drugs/alcohol, I've experienced feeling abandon, alone, scared, confused, depressed and suicidal.  


 I am inspired to help other teen mothers who are or has experienced these traumas.

It has been a honor for me to create this organization to share my experience.

Leonorea Brown

  At a time when I was struggling, Annette went above and beyond to be a blessing to me. If it had not been for her on more than one occasion.... I don’t know what I would have done. My daughter was well taken care of treated as if she was natural family. Annette made sure my baby went to school, Dr appointments, and special activities. Thanks to Annette my daughter was introduced to things and places  that I was not able to give to my child at the time. Even after I got on my feet she still keeps frequent contact wit my baby. She is still treated as family. If I ever need any help, or if my daughter was to ever call. I know Annette would be there if needed. Coming from a broken home, a troubled upbringing... Annette helped show me how to remain positive. To keep fighting. Never give up. My daughter gained a mentor, a role model, a support system, an extended family. And everyone knows how much Nani loves Her Nana!!!

Annette Houston was and still is a dedicated mentor I grew up in DCFS and it was never a time where I spoke to Ms. Houston and didn’t get encouraging words. She visited me in group homes always made sure I had somebody when I was in doubt and felt I had nobody. She push me to graduate from high school so that I can say I accomplish something in life. I learn so much from this lady I now have a 8 year old daughter living in my own apartment and also working a real 9/5 . I have came very far mentally, emotionally, and physical and I have to thank Ms.Houston she definitely played a major part.

 Annette Houston was someone that I always looked up to since I was 14 years old. Now at the age of 35 she reminds me of the woman that I want to be. Now 21 years later after meeting her I still think about and learn from her struggles as a teen. Her being my mentor and my other mother I was able to be strong independent mature at a young age and able to get through any struggle. When I was a new mom and homeless she accepted me into her home I still chose to go to a homeless shelter to not depend on her but it made me feel good that she was accepting and showing me that she would always be there for me even though we lose contact sometimes. Now she is trying to help young teen mothers everywhere.  When I was at the age of 22 I had my first child and she still helped me. I know what she can do for young teen mothers. I just hope they learn and benefit from it like I did as a young adult.
