“My future is bright and full of possibilities. I am currently a senior at Dallas Baptist University working on a bachelor’s degree in psychology with a minor in Christian Ministry. Who knew that this day would be possible for me to accomplish! I thought that I could do it, but I was not sure since I had dropped out of college 22 years ago due to low self-esteem. I worked on my self-esteem with the help of my local church family until I felt ready to return to school. I was referred to Silvia Briceno at the EOC by my caseworker. I told her my plight about my child and I having been homeless, my involvement with the Adopt-a-Family program and my desire to return to college to obtain my bachelor’s degree. During our visit, Mrs. Briceno assured me that I could do it! She encouraged me and provided me with helpful materials that I used in preparing to return to college and assisted me with my financial aid. I am thankful for the advice and compassion I received. Thank you, EOC!!!”
