Comments From ANYSH Youth
“So far I am proud of myself for all that I have achieved. I wouldn’t have ever done it without the staff at ANYSH. They’ve given me a lot of help, support and guidance. If this Safe House wasn’t open I don’t know where I would be right now. I might be homeless, or maybe even dead. This place has given me respect and guidance, leading to a better life.”- Anonymous
“The staff have given me so much support, wisdom, insight, teachings and guidance. Thank you, all of you. You don’t realize how much you have helped me. You have a great team! Thank you for your understanding” -Anonymous
