"This program has helped me in many ways, such as giving me resources for school, housing, food & jobs. When I was first introduced to this program I was very scared & had second thoughts. Without the words of encouragement of Ms.Priscilla I wouldn't of been here. Recently, I've lost two of my family members, & one of the things that have helped me through this is that everyone in this program have been extremely understanding. One of the first things I had mentioned before coming here was going back to school. They introduced me to many schools, one of which I recently applied to. Moving here was scary for me because I was alone, but being here now & being surrounded by people who just want me to succeed has brought comfort & confidence in me. I know that I can always ask for help because they have made me feel that way. I want to make everyone that works in this program proud of me. I am extremely thankful that this opportunity was presented to me."
