Michael

If it wasn’t for Crosswinds, I would be a street junkie. Or I would be in prison. Or I would be dead … and that is a fact.

My mother didn’t want me. My father didn’t want me. When Crosswinds took me in, they gave me vocational skills and helped me secure a job. They provided counseling that helped me cope with family issues and anger. I got my GED. I wanted to go to college. They assisted me with receiving financial aid.

If it wasn’t for Crosswinds, I would be a street junkie. Or I would be in prison. Or I would be dead … and that is a fact. Before Crosswinds, my attitude was poor. But I had a chance to change before things got really bad. It was a great place to be. These people genuinely cared.

Michael is now successfully serving in the U.S. Navy where he recently was promoted to third class petty officer.
