“Eleven years ago, I chose AWL because they treated me with respect, they were responsive, they did not push me, they were calling me to see how I was doing, and most importantly, they developed a plan that fit around my unique needs and dreams.”
It’s one of the hardest decisions, but the right kind of support can lift the weight from your shoulders.
“I didn’t think it would be this hard or that my feelings would’ve been this strong… The people at AWL have been very understanding… I also thank God every day that there are people out there who care so much.”
