When Samantha thinks about Pleasant Hill Place (PHP), she thinks about a safe home that offers a program so that families can succeed. Samantha moved into PHP in May of 2019 with her two young daughters. Her children love attending school, learning new things and watching Disney movies.
Her oldest daughter has high functioning autism and through the support of PHP staff, Samantha has been able to connect with Autism Services. Through this connection, she has learned how to support herself and her family with day-to-day life.
Since moving into Pleasant Hill Place Samantha has been able to expand her circle of support and she no longer feels intimidated to ask for help. Her parenting knowledge has also expanded, and she feels better equipped to manage the evolving needs of her children. Samantha is now more confident in the decisions that she makes and has a better understanding of how they affect her and her children.
