    The youth who come through the doors of Outreach fall along a continuum of transformation.

    Lamar

    Though never married, his parents were together on and off for 13 years. Each had a decent job. Lamar and his younger sister and brother never went hungry, really didn’t want for anything. Then everything fell apart.

    His parents split for good. His mom got a second job, and left Lamar in charge of making sure everybody did homework, did chores, ate dinner and got to bed on time.

  • Michelle

    My name is Michelle and and I can say for sure that meeting Megan seven years ago was one of the best things that has happened to my life. When I first met Megan I was homeless, depressed, scared, and living on the streets in an abusive relationship. I could not parent my children because of my lifestyle and my state of mind.

    I will always be grateful to Megan for the ways she guided me and helped me in my darkest times of life. I finally came realize that the rest was up to me. I had to make choices to be a healthy person and mom.
