I greatly appreciated my experience at o3. It was very enlightening and resourceful. I got help and guidance to achieve my goals and prepare a brighter future for me and my son. The programs were very insightful and helped me to improve my lifestyle.J.S.
Collective Kitchen has inspired me to cook much healthier for my children and for myself.LJ
O3 offers great parenting programs such as Women on the Rise, that give me tips and many ideas on ways to facilitate parenting issues that I am facing when dealing with my children. The parenting programs also offer insight on child development as well, which helps me to better understand my children. O3 also offers other programs such as budgeting and conflict resolution that helps my personally to deal with daily issues as well as to help me organize myself to prioritize my life and to achieve my goals. Extra curricular programs such as Spoken Word brought out a hidden talent that I never openly expressed.TB
By having the privilege to be a resident at O3, I was able to successfully complete my studies, and achieve most of my short term goals I had previously set for myself, in order to become a better mother.AC
