I lived at the Masonic Home for Children for almost 10 years. When I first arrived, like any child, I was scared and sad to be away from home. In no time, I made tons of friends, quickly became involved in all of the sports offered and also began to excel in my academics. MHCO provided me with the social skills I use every day in my profession and personal life. I am an independent, successful woman and believe these traits were obtained by learning to accomplish simple duties, which were required during my stay at MHCO. I now have the courage to know that our dreams don’t have to be fantasies, but actual goals which can be achieved by anyone.
