A member of our church referred my sister and I to Youth Without Shelter. When we got there, we were welcomed and made to feel at home. I used to call it shelter but after sometime I called it home. I met with different people with different dreams and staff that always made sure you were on track with school and life. You not only provide us with food but give us hope and a reason to live. Now I am a 17 year old boy in college studying mechanical engineering and my sister is in her second year studying nursing. I know everyone is proud of us. What contributed to our success is the help that we got from the shelter. There were just so much help coming from different angles that is why I called it home. Apart from my success, coming to this shelter helped build my self-esteem. I used to be really shy and anti-social but now I associate with people! Thank you for the help and the smile that you put on everyone's faces every day.
