“I owe so much to HAWC. They saved my family and me. Their direction and guidance gave us strength to move on and heal. HAWC made sure I had supplies for school and presents on Christmas day. HAWC helped me heal and make fantasies of safety and strength real. They showed me I can be - bigger, stronger, better, whatever I want to be. They taught me its ok to trust and that life gets better. “
