Success Stories at Providence

Krystle’s Story

Krystle came to Providence after high school to further learn the skills necessary to gain more independence in her life.  She immediately went to work with her mentor to identify her goals and make plans on how to achieve them.  Krystle was honored in 2013 at Providence’s  “Hero in All of Us” event for her ambition to build her skillset.

Krystle enjoys making pottery and caring for children and continues to pursue goals in both fields. To strengthen her talents in pottery-making, Krystle is taking classes at Anne Arundel Community College. She is sharing her artistic abilities at an elementary afterschool program where she landed a job teaching ceramics. In a short time, she showcased her qualifications in a volunteer opportunity at a child care center which resulted in Krystle gaining a paid position.

To further build self-sufficiency, Krystle is mastering household tasks like planning and cooking dinner for her family and using coin-operated laundry machines. These skills have allowed Krystle to start making plans to move into her own apartment. Krystle appreciates the support she receives at Providence Center and says, “They help me do what I want to do in life.”
