"This organization saved me in many ways. It helped me gain back my confidence and with my job search. With all of their staff's help, I am now able to manage a full time job and have an actual house with no support from any local organizations. They helped me make it back to where I knew I had to be. I hope one day I can help out and set someone on the right path to an amazing life." - Ashley
