Kyrstal and her son, Jack, 1, recently moved from Pennsylvania to Fort Myers, Florida, in search of a better life. But, despite her best efforts, Kyrstal is struggling to find a safe place to live with Jack.
Aware of Kyrstal’s crisis, the Department of Children and Families (DCF) recommended she reach out to Better Together for help.
“I know he is going to be safe,” Kyrstal said of her decision to allow a Better Together host family to care temporarily for Jack.
With support from Better Together, Kyrstal has begun her journey toward creating a better life and bringing her baby boy home. Baby Jack is currently being hosted with a family through our Better Families program. His brave mommy, Kyrstal, is working hard to create a better life for them on the other side.
Follow their journey through weekly online updates, and learn how you can help cheer them on toward their new, Better Family.
