Eighteen-year-old Eva wasn’t sure how she could raise a baby while going to school. It seemed like too much, until she got connected with Rose of Sharon Services for Young Mothers.

She worked with a counsellor, participated in parenting classes, and began high school programming tailored to her specific needs, while entrusting her daughter to the childminding staff. She was finding success at school, which had always been a struggle due to a learning disability.

An overwhelming setback

Then Covid-19 hit and she once again felt overwhelmed. But, with the support of her counsellor and teacher, Eva persevered and graduated in June 2020

Since the students at Rose of Sharon could no longer celebrate together, staff organized a mobile graduation.

Eva received her Ontario Secondary School diploma during a brief socially-distanced ceremony, as she was applauded by the people who have loved, supported and encouraged her along the way.
