Wanted you to know that Hilary is really loving Urban Corps, both the school and the work program. She gets up every morning at 5 am and does things like iron her uniform or finish her homework. It is really changing her life and I wanted to say thank you. It is truly making all the difference. She is like a completely different person now, and I see her confidence building daily when she gets home in the afternoon. Thank you, thank you!
