Join Edmonton’s Sarah Hendricks as she shares her inspiring story.

Sarah’s childhood was filled with instability and fear brought on by her parents' addictions. As a teen, she searched for a place to fit in and struggled with her own mental health, addictions and homelessness. The moment Sarah found out she was pregnant at 18, she decided her child deserved a different life. Join us to hear how Sarah is achieving just that!


This event is inspiring and uplifting – you don’t want to miss it!
