  • At 18 I was kicked out and became homeless.
    My life only changed when I went to a Chapter 1 project.
    I had a reason for living and all their hard work made me the person
    I am today. I went back to college, and I now
    teach dance to young people." Steve*

  • The best part for me was being able to give my little girl the opportunity to see her father without my having to deal directly with a person who frightened me. It's so lovely to feel that you are safe and supported, and your child is safe and supported." Sally*
