Laura and Maya’s story
Laura was involved in an abusive relationship. With the help of Youth Eastside Services, she got out, then sought parenting support from YES to help ensure that her four-week-old daughter, Maya, got a healthy start in life.
She was also one of the first families to participate in YES’ newly launched Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) services, which helped her manage behavior issues and deepen her bond with her daughter. This is their story.
