F.I.T ANGELS: Women Helping Women
F.I.T ANGELS (Future Is Today: Ambition, Nurturing, Goal Oriented, Empowered, Loving, Strong)
F.I.T. ANGELS was founded in January 2006 to allow me, Candice Bent, to give back to the community and share my skills, experience and knowledge with girls that are transitioning in to teenage motherhood. I, myself, was a teenage single mother, I was scared, confused and was not sure if I was going to be able to be a teen mom. I stayed focused, finished high school, continued onto college where I attained my Business Administration Certificate and shortly there after my now 12 year career began. My daughter recently graduated from High School and is starting her first year of college. Proof is in the pudding.
I am going to do my best to ensure you that "if I could do it so can you". I will share all my experiences, education, knowledge and guidance to assist you into transitioning into your new life as a single teenage mother.
I am from an Aboriginal background and want to get involved with my aboriginal culture. I want to focus on assisting young aboriginal girls in achieving their dreams and goals as teen mothers.
Our ultimate goal is to create a culture of women helping women, and enable the women of the future to continue on a successful, health and happy life path.
Our Vision Statement is to enable teen moms to make a successful transition into motherhood with the following qualities:
The world is full of ANGELS, it is this ANGELS that we will seek to be part of our organization in a volunteer or supporter capacity.
Every client will strive to become ANGELS. The future is today.
