"Youth Outlook helped to transform me from a disaffected youth, uninterested in life or community into a healthy and productive member of society. More importantly, though, Youth Outlook kept me alive. To this day, I maintain that I wouldn't have lived to see 18 had it not been for the support of this agency."
