You can help us create better lives for struggling young adults

December, 2016 Milford, CT "I am so very thankful and very grateful for everything you have done for me. Now that the winter is coming again I am remembering all the cold nights I had to stay in my truck. I have to say I am lucky to have met you guys and have your support and help me stay up on my feet and not letting me fall even when I wanted to. When I didn't have the strength you gave it to me without even blinking or me having to ask twice. I am so very grateful and again thank you so much for everything! I can't even stress or express how grateful and thankful I am. "
