From when I was a child to my early teenage years, I was inappropriately taken advantage of. As a child, that scarred me, it made me go down the wrong path. It led me to stealing and other things you couldn’t even imagine. But when I moved to Star of Hope someone introduced me to Hope For Youth and ever since then it made a brighter day in my life. I can honestly say if it was not for Hope For Youth, I would not be here to tell you this story.
