— Shiniah (Mom)
“My daughter was 14 when she had her baby. She wouldn't talk to anybody. This program has helped her grow. She is able to talk to people who have experienced what she has been through. I appreciate them.”
Shiniyah came to RBC at 14 in the 9th grade. She is now Junior in CPS schools. She is feeling more confident as a mom and is learning "self-love." Her baby boy is 2. He is very smart and kind. He loves his mom. STORY.
