East Side Stories

Disrupting Barriers: Sarah’s Story

“East Side first touched my life as a child living in the community, when two of my siblings graduated from Menlo Park Academy. Eventually I became a single mom of two beautiful children, but when my son was diagnosed with autism I was overwhelmed. I needed help and support to push through the many barriers my family was facing, so I went to East Side.”

Building Pathways: Esther’s Story

“I have multiple health issues, and in January 2017 I knew that I needed to get my health back on track immediately. I needed a pathway back into health—I didn’t want to lose my legs, go blind, or face kidney failure.”
