Success Story

Brandy, Delaware

Mom finds new direction thanks to Telamon

Telamon Corporation - Brandy | Success Story in DelawareWhen Brandy found her local Telamon 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.

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. Brandy’s other three children — Brittany, Braney and Michael — also attended Telamon Head Start and continue to excel in school.

Looking back, Brandy says, “Without a doubt, our lives would have been totally different without Telamon Head Start.”
