"Our family is extremely grateful to MLC for all that this program has given to our son. I feel strongly that MLC has given my son back his life and a future that is whole and complete. He now has goals and feels valued and part of a community. He isn't afraid to try something new because he knows it will be positive and if it doesn't work quite the way he anticipates, he will have support as he figures it out. Before MLC, each thing he tried that didn't work left him demoralized and discouraged. He was depressed and anxious. He is now a part of his community and feels valued by both students and staff. I have no idea how to thank MLC and the generous donors for the opportunity he has been provided."
