“I get a tremendous feeling when I’m helping others, and enjoy being useful and needed. Being in a position to help children in need is the most rewarding thing anyone could ever do. As I work with troubled youth who really need me, I know the help I’m giving them is life-changing. And I’m only one piece of the puzzle doing that here.”
