For decades the month of March has been dedicated to honoring the contributions of women. Women’s History Month observes the impacts women have had throughout American history, both big and small. 

Project HOME is home to dozens of remarkable women. Tiffany Jones, a mother and resident at Rowan Homes Judson (Rowan Judson), enrolled in the Adult Education program at the Honickman Learning Center Comcast Technology Labs (HLCCTL). She’s working toward earning her GED to expand her opportunities.

“I want my GED so I can further my goals,” said Jones. “There's more opportunities and better things than I can reach for. I know that Project HOME will help me with that. It's comforting.”

Destiney Smith also lives at Rowan Judson with her brother, her 2-year-old son, and a baby on the way. Since joining Project HOME she’s taken classes to learn more about parenting and connecting with other moms. 

She said, “I feel like I need to learn more. It’s just giving us advice on what we can see in case this happens to our children. The parenting program is my favorite. If they had like classes me and my kid can come to, I'd love that too because it’ll show like it’ll help me interact more with my son.”

Jones and Smith recognize the value of investing in themselves and their families. “Everybody needs help at some point,” said Jones.

Smith encourages others to follow their dreams and never give up. “Don’t let the bad win, continue with the positive,” said Smith. 

Project HOME celebrates all women making an impact in our community.
