"If you have that drive and passion to succeed, the Growing Home community can help get you there."
"Being responsible for plants and seedlings, and caring for them much like you would a child, gave me a sense of being needed."
"This program helped me become a professional. I have a 401k. I have good benefits. I’m proud. My mom is proud."
"I like to give people
perspective on change,
let them know that change
Wherever I go in the next five, ten, twenty years, it's always going to come back to this. To Growing Home. Because there's something that you all saw in me, and your hearts went out to me. People don't have to do something like that if they don't want to. They do it because they believe someone like me deserves a second chance. Growing Home gave me a second chance.Program Graduate
