I love living with the Young Adult Program. I have more opportunity here than I have had anywhere else. The bus system was hard to figure out when I first got here, but living at YAP I have learned the system in no time.
I wanted to live in a place that was safe for me and my daughter, and YAP turned out to be more than that. They have staff that I can talk to and that always are here to listen. At the young age of sixteen, I am already in college and I love it. I have my very own apartment, which I have learned to keep clean and be responsible for.
I have become more social, even meeting new clients that come in right away. The staff have helped me find me a GED class that I have leaned to enjoy daily. They do a great job at listening and doing everything they can to make bad situations better. I was given a chance to be part of a good community and I am going to make the best of it.
My daughter is now seven months and it is nice to know she grew up at YAP. There are other children at YAP so she gets to interact with other babies. I just was to say thank you for giving me a chance to express how I feel about living at YAP.
