The Aftercare Program of Room At The Inn of the Carolinas continues its case management work with former residents, up to five years following the birth of their children. Former residents can participate in quarterly support groups and goal counseling and receive financial and material assistance.
Blaine had just been accepted into a Pre-Med Program at East Carolina University when she found out that she was pregnant. She had been mentored early in life by an uncle who taught her the value of hard work and a good education. Even though Blaine was used to working and studying diligently, it became very clear that entering the ECU’s program would not be possible at that time.
While at Room At The Inn of the Carolinas, Blaine worked two jobs and continued her education at North Carolina State A & T University. She had her beautiful son, Randall, Jr., and continued with her studies. In December, Blaine will graduate with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology. In the Spring, Blaine plans to apply to Wake Forest University’s Bowman Gray School of Medicine for acceptance in the Post-Baccalaureate Program. With all her successes, Blaine never brags, she simply says:
"I believe that every success that I have achieved is due to God’s goodness. He blessed my life with Room At The Inn and I give Him the glory."
Blaine says that she admires the people who support Room At The Inn of the Carolinas because they make a difference in the lives of their community members and that is also the reason she wants to be a Doctor. Blaine wants to make a difference in people’s lives.
We bring hope to families through your support.
