How one DC mother rose out of welfare and taught her daughter “to soar”

To kick off 2017, we bring you a special story of hope.  When Crystal Jenkins got pregnant with her daughter in the projects of Washington DC, she had no home, no job and no hope for a better future.  Drugs, crime and poverty plagued her life, but her daughter gave Crystal the strength to dream.  Now she says her daughter “will have what I never had, she’ll know she can do anything she wants in this life, she’ll know she can soar…”  Listen to find out how she did it.

Crystal’s testimony was taken from Little Lights Urban Ministries.  Head over to their website to donate.
