Meet Your Facilitator

Hello friend,

My name is Valerie Agresta-Franck.  I understand how it is to be a Single Mom and to take care of all the needs of caring for a family.  I lived through many of the obstacles that you may be enduring as I raised my two children into adulthood.  Now I am remarried and am an OMA to two beautiful grandbabies.  I look forward to listening and sharing to help you navigate the path God has for you.

Hey there! I am Ashley Therrell, I have worked alongside families in ministry for almost 5 years. In this time I have seen what any family needs truly is support. This is what we hope to bring you and your family through Embrace Grace. We want to create a safe space for single moms to grow, learn, and fellowship together! My best friend growing up was raised by a single mother. I saw the strength it took every minute of every day for her to bring up her daughter. I also observed how difficult it was for her to receive the support she truly needed. Our goal is to break that cycle, to serve single mothers, and to provide moms with a space to decompress, to be refilled, and to grow in community with each other.

Meet Your Facilitator

Hello!

My name is Brittany Smith. I’m 33 and a single mom to an 8 month old. This has been a MAJOR adjustment, but I’m blessed to have the amazing support of my mother and friends. My son came along as I completed my Master's Degree and I have never been more motivated in my life. I know the importance of support and resources and I’m looking forward to working with other single moms and building resources and fostering relationships with others.
