I just wanted to take a moment to thank you and your staff for all the assistance and support you provided to my clients during their stay at Young People Matter. The girls moved out of a volatile living situation and were able to come into a stable, caring environment with home cooked dinners nightly there at the shelter. The loving kindness shown to them from all your staff, the extra programming through library outings, swimming and clothing provided through the local thrift shop really helped them to prepare for a smooth transition back to the school year. It was also a great comfort to them to know that there were other young ladies in their situation without a stable living environment.
I got to visit with them both yesterday at their schools.
You will be pleased to know that they have been attending regularly, had a generally positive outlook despite their still uncertain custody issues, and were grateful for the time and generosity shown to them while living under your
roof. Please extend our heartfelt thanks to your staff and may you continue to be blessed in your endeavors.
