"I am so thankful for Success Street. I was having a hard time focusing in class because I thought I might be pregnant. I came down to Success Street and was able to talk with an educator about my concerns. She really helped me with a lot of questions I had, and I was able to take a pregnancy test that day to find out I was not pregnant. We also talked about STDs and I was able to make an appointment with the doctors at Success Street that same week! They were very helpful and so nice to talk with. After my appointments I was able to go right back to class without worry."
"I stopped down to talk with Success Street about birth control and to get some questions answered. During my conversation with the staff, they thought it might be a good idea to meet with one of the mental health counselors at Success Street. I was able to talk with them that same week!"
"I called Success Street to get my child scheduled for a physical. They were so helpful and my child was able to pick up the paperwork that same day for me to fill out. As soon as we got the paperwork turned in my child was placed on the schedule! This is so amazing for my family as right now my husband and I both work full time and are not able to take off work for appointments. This way we did not have to miss work or pull our child out of school. Thank you Success Street!"
