"Everything that I have been able to do - get my kids in daycare, find a full-time job, learn how to budget my money - is thanks to Sarah's House,"said Lauren Volker, a former Sarah's House resident. "The volunteers and staff have been wonderful, and have been such a help to me and my family. This program teaches you a lot and gives you the tools to be independent. I am determined to make it on my own, and thanks to Sarah's House I am more determined than ever."
