15 Mar Peace Of Mind
Like many young adults, after graduating from college I moved back in with my parents to save some money so that I could buy a car, pay my rent and really start living on my own. It was an exciting and scary time but knowing my family was there to support me…well, that provided peace of mind that all would be okay.
Meet Gerrick; a teenager determined to finish college so he could take care of himself and start pursuing a career. After losing the support of his family because of his sexual orientation Gerrick goes from a carefree college student to worrying daily about where his next meal will come from and where to lay his head each night. Time Out Youth and their Host Home program changed all that for him. Basic needs are what they provided. A family and peace of mind is what he gained.
