“My life as a new mom was pretty exhausting and confusing. There were many questions I had that other agencies could not exactly support me with in terms of just being able to talk freely and honestly about the things that were going on at home. Vita Centre gave me the chance to be honest and gave me the right support and step by step guidance without judging me or jumping to conclusions and also provided me with amazing resources. I don’t know where I would be today if I hadn’t had my counsellor come out to me that day when I was about to give up! Today I am very successful mom with an amazing blooming toddler! 🙂 Thank you Vita for everything. You are truly amazing and I’m confident that you will change many further lives!” -F.U.
