Merry Christmas from Amy's Place. We are very much alive and actually doing pretty well. Amy's Place had two wonderful success stories this past weekend. One youth, only 16 years old came back from a 5 month stay in treatment and after care placement. He is doing awesome!!! Not only is he clean from drugs, but he is determined to take up a career in drug and alcohol counselling. Another young man, 23 years old, came into Amy's Place beaming Friday. He said, "Heidi, I'm inside now, and I'm getting help with my teeth, and signed up for school." It is wonderful to hear success................
Amy's Place is preparing for our Christmas Party and 8th Anniversary on Friday, December 19th at 6:00 pm at Amy's Place. There is so much prep to put on a special night for the kids.
