I don't know what would have been of
me if it wasn't for the HOST Program... As I look back, I realize
how the HOST Program helped me develop the discipline and self-control
that I needed to put my life together... It's nice to know that
other kids are going through what I did have a place like HOST Program
that they can rely on.
