Jackie's Story

“Everyone’s capable of being strong. I used to think everything was impossible, but nothing’s impossible now.”

Before her pregnancy, Jackie's life was spiralling, as toxic relationships and habits undermined her health, and her happiness. With the support of The Babes Project, the determined young woman quit drugs and had little Cleo, despite tough circumstances.

“I couldn’t have turned my life around for anything else, but everything is worth it for her.”
