“Their health and happiness is what keeps me going. I’m so tired from work but when I pick Kieran up and he greets me with the biggest smile, all the tiredness from the work is just gone.”
In March 2020, Nathelie was referred to HCSA Dayspring SPIN (Single Parents INformed, INvolved, INcluded) by a close friend. Her case was successfully closed a year later.
She reached out to SPIN a second time in March 2022 for further emotional and practical assistance. Presently, she receives support for meals, clothing, household items and tuition – for Kyle, who is in Primary 2 this year.
When asked of her goals for the future, Nathelie says she wishes to have her own place in five years. Other than that, she is content that her children are happy and healthy and that she has a stable, fulfilling job.
