“A couple of years ago, I thought I was going to lose my job because I was required to take some late shifts, but my children are too young to stay home alone. I didn’t know what to do. Just then, I received a true blessing as MHP started the GATOR afterschool program at Arcola Elementary, and I was able to enroll my children. It was the only afterschool activity I could afford. The GATOR program literally saved my job.”
Molly is a wonderful person with a kind smile and a beautiful voice. She grew up in rural Montgomery County with six siblings in a 2-bedroom trailer with no running water or electricity. They had a beloved vegetable garden and went to church every Sunday.
