Carson's Story

"The PAL Program gave me one of the best people there is in this world. She has helped me through some pretty tough times, and stood by me when anyone else would spilt, not to look back anytime soon. She has been a breath of fresh air, where there is only smog. Our friendship is real. This was one of my concerns in the beginning. I wondered if she felt obligated to be friends with me. Maybe that is how it began, however our friendship has advanced beyond that. She has helped me to grow, mature, to feel secure in myself and my actions.

My PAL has never judged me or made me feel insecure for being myself, instead she has accepted me with open arms. Building me up, rather than tearing me down. Whether we are painting pottery and eating delicious cookies or studying, our time spent together always feels like time well-spent. I would tell anyone who is looking into this program, that this is an important and worthy program."
