MG’s Story

I have had the pleasure of volunteering at Our Place in New York for the past 10 years. Our Place is a drop-in center for teens who would be in trouble if they had no safe place to spend their evenings. I witnessed, over time, how many of these lively teens have gone from a troubled or at least difficult life, to become outstanding young adults who are assets to society. Most people would be surprised to see how far a little love can go. It is not an easy job but I find it is very rewarding. I pray that we can keep our doors open to service these young people.
