This is a voice message from a former Transitional Living Program participant:

"Just calling to let you guys know that I worked things out with my mom and I arranged coming back home to Chicago with her. Um, it looks like things are the way they should have been all along, I guess I earned her trust back. So, I just drove home. The past two days I was driving on my way back to Chicago and every thing went fine, got home safe.

I really appreciate what y'all helped me with over there, you were really critical to my survial when I first got there. It was good to know I had people behind me. It just helped me get that boost to get things together and earn my family’s trust back. So I just want you to know that I really support what y'all are doing for the youth over there in that area. I really appreciate everything you did for me. I wish the best for y'all. Hopefully, one day I can support what you are doing better than just believing in it. Um, I don’t know, if you want to keep contact with me but that is fine or check in. I still have the same phone number. It looks like I may be joining the Army or something similar to that shortly. But I am home safe now and everything is better. So, have a good one, see ya."
