A NORTH TEXAS MOTHER THAT BROKE THE CYCLE OF POVERTY IF HER OWN LIFE IS TEACHING OTHERS TO DO THE SAME IN THIS WEEK, WE INTRODUCE TO KAREN BRIGHT AND HER GROWING NONPROFIT CALLED PAMPER LAKE

WHEN I'M WALKING AROUND HERE, IT'S REALLY SURREAL KAREN BRIGHT REFLECTS ON HER OWN DAYS AS A YOUNG MOM I'M FOUR GENERATION POVERTY I DROPPED OUT OF HIGH SCHOOL AFTER FAILING NINTH GRADE TWICE I WAS HOMELESS BY THE TIME I WAS AGE 20

AND HOW FAR SHE'S COME FROM THERE WE WANTED MORE I WANTED NOT TO LIVE IN POVERTY I DIDN'T HAVE THE SKILLS THAT I NEEDED TO BREAK THAT CYCLE WITH THE SUPPORT OF FAMILIES IN THE NORTHEAST DALLAS COMMUNITY WHO SAW SOMETHING IN HER — THEY GAVE ME MENTOR SHIP AND CONNECTED ME WITH PLACES I NEVER WOULD HAVE CONNECTED WITH MYSELF

THEY STARTED WITH THE MOST BASIC NEEDS FROM EXPERIENCE, SHE KNEW YOU CAN'T SEND A CHILD TO DAY CARE WITHOUT DIAPERS COVERS FOOD AND FORMULA THERE'S NOTHING THAT COVERS BASIC NECESSITIES LIKE DIAPERS

CHILD CARE WAS A NECESSITY FOR WOMEN TRYING TO MOVE OUT OF POVERTY AND INTO CAREERS YOU NEED TO HAVE A HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMA OR GED TO GET A LIVABLE WAGE JOB FIVE YEARS LATER, PAMPER LAKE HIGHLANDS ELEVATES JOB AND READINESS, ESL AND PARENTING YOU HAVE FOR THESE MOTHERS AND PRESCHOOL FOR THEIR KIDS IT WAS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR ME TO BETTER MYSELF AS A WIFE, AS A MOTHER, AS A WOMAN IN GENERAL PITS IS A MOTHER OF SIX

I'VE BEEN STAYING AT HOME AND WANTING TO GO BACK TO SCHOOL AND GET THINGS UNDER MY BELT, BUT JUST FINANCES AND CHILD CARE IT NEVER REALLY WORKED OUT FOR ME THIS PROGRAM PROVIDED HER RESOURCES TODAY SHE'S A CERTIFIED CHILD DEVELOPMENT ASSOCIATE IT WAS NOTHING SHORT OF AMAZING

IT WAS VERY ENLIGHTENING ONCE YOU EMPOWER GENERATIONS TOGETHER, THOSE FUTURE GENERATIONS WILL NEVER KNOW POVERTY LIKE THE WOMEN THAT INSPIRED THEM THE FUTURE FOR THESE FAMILIES IS BRIGHT I WALK THE HALLWAYS EXCITED AND EMPOWERED MYSELF KNOWING WHERE I CAME FROM AND WHERE I CAN GO IS EXCITING IN LAKE HIGHLANDS, CBS 11 NEWS
