Prior to arriving at MHCO, I had experienced many transitions and suffered from neglect and abuse. My dream was to graduate from high school and go to college so I could have a better life. I credit MHCO for supporting, mentoring and helping me actualize my dreams. When I realized that they wanted nothing but for me to succeed and were all committed to helping me, I knew my dreams of a better life were becoming reality and I had found my home. I will never forget my journey and am committed to supporting youths from similar backgrounds in their pursuit of better outcomes. Given the proper foundational supports, any child can excel in life despite where they come from.
