Page Turner credits community support as one of the biggest ways she was able to raise three kids as a single mother. While she didn’t have a co-parent to help her out, mentioning that she never received any child support from her children’s father, she did have the help of her friends and family.
“My kids probably still don’t know to this day how many people helped me make sure they had milk and had food and had nice clothes,” she said on Fearless Authenticity with Jeanne Sparrow. “I never had to go into the public assistance system because I had such a great Los Angeles foundation.”
Turner’s mother was also a “saving grace,” as the HGTV star told Yahoo! that her mom lived with the family for 14 years to help out with the kids. However, when Turner decided to make the move from LA to Nashville, she left a big chunk of her community behind. The TV personality knew a few people after she relocated, but she largely had to rely on her faith and hard work.
