Baby Genesis Warren County
Submitted by Marissa Barrett, December 2022 

Which service was provided for your family? 
Home Visiting and Early Intervention

What's your baby's name, and where are you from?
It's Genesis, and we're in Warren County, Ohio

What's your story? 
Candace, my home visitor, is beyond amazing and I don’t think I’d be where I am if she didn’t push me to lengths I didn’t think were possible. When I first came into the Home Visiting program, I was homeless, pregnant, and jobless. Candace reached out to every program she could think of and I was then placed in the Family Promise program and later gave birth to my daughter. I moved into my very own place, I got a job and a car, and everything fell right into place. Genesis also developed some developmental delays which required physical therapy and seeing a few specialists. Candace always made sure she had access to the best Warren County had to offer when it came to her Early Intervention. Genesis is now 13 months old and walking with very few signs of delay now! I couldn’t be more proud of Candace and her team, and without her I’d be lost!.
