They gave me hope

I am 14 years old. Two years ago I was homeless, on drugs and committing crimes so I could eat. It felt hopeless . . . lonely and everyday seemed to get longer and longer. When I finally got into the MYFS program, they made me feel like I mattered when no one else did. They gave me hope that there was something better and they gave me a place to heal. I got treatment, work full-time now and no longer use drugs to escape reality
