Jay, a 16 year old with nowhere to go, came to Home Horizon in need of help. Jay was brought into program with a goal of getting back to school, getting a part time job; and dealing with his court issues.

Since Jay has been in our program, he has achieved those goals and is now setting new goals. He cooks, cleans and is a responsible person on his way to success.

Johnny, 19 was a drop out of school due to conflict in the home. He felt he could not go home to the conflict that was happening at home. He was not welcome anyway. He applied to Home Horizon and moved into the house. Johnny got a job and although he did not want to go back to school, he was encouraged to try to get his GED and is working on it at the present time. Johnny is now living on his own and is doing ok. He still has work to do, but he is in a much better state then before, he has some skills to resolve his own issues and seems happier.

Doug, 24 was not in a position where he could afford a place on his own. He was not able to live with his mother and his father is not available. He needed help. Still being young and never having support of parents, he welcomed the skills he learned in the BWH. He was able to secure a home and move in and loves his new place to live.
