Founded in 1976, Perspectives, Inc. is an award-winning human service program that addresses society’s most pressing issues: homelessness, poverty, addiction, mental illness, poor nutrition, and lack of access to services for homeless and recovering mothers and their children. You see, there is a special relationship between a mother and child, and not only do we understand that relationship, but we champion it!
We realize that when a woman is raised with a lifetime of abandonment, addiction, trauma, poverty, and abuse her chances of replicating that cycle with her own children are incredibly high. But what we also know, and have shown for over 43 years, is that intervening with the correct set of tools can and does work. That is our program, which provides all that a mother needs to empower herself and begin to rebuild her family. The human spirit is simply amazing, and we have seen time and again that when a woman becomes a mother, she wants so badly to do it differently. She wants her children to have a different life than she had. By utilizing Perspectives’ comprehensive programs, she discovers that her life experience and strength become the raw material to create a promising future for her family.
