“It’s definitely a lot safer here. Everything is locked up, and we have our rooms. We’re safe with the people who come in and out; it’s not random people all the time. And the workers make time for us; we have support here when we need it.”

“I turn 21 soon and would have lost my support. But I can stay here. The workers here are some of the best I’ve encountered, so it’s been a good living situation, knowing I’m not alone.”

Many connections and friendships blossomed.
