    Success Story

    Brandy, Delaware

    Mom finds new direction thanks to Telamon.

    Telamon Delaware 04When Brandy found her local Head Start program, she was a single mother looking for help with the financial burden of day care. She thought that if she put her daughter, Brianna, in a morning program subsidized for families in need, she could save money on day care.

    Little did she know that Telamon Delaware Head Start would forever change her life and put her and her children on a path to success. 

    “Without a doubt, our lives would have been totally different,” she said.

    Some 15 years later, that then single mother has become a college-educated professional with a job as a grant specialist for the National Science Foundation. Brianna, 18, who wants to study environmental engineering, is entertaining multiple college offers. Smith’s other three children — Brittany, Braney and Michael — also attended Head Start and continue to excel in school.
