Grace’s Dreams Continue To Come True

“Avenues was truly a blessing in my life. I still remember the graduation party they had for me when I graduated high school,” Grace, a former youth from 2007, said.

Grace moved into Avenues in the summer of 2007, right before her senior year. She stayed with us for nine months before moving into her own apartment. In 2014, Grace spoke at our very first Building on Dreams Breakfast.

“I’ve been thinking about what I said at the breakfast,” Grace said, remembering her speech. “I talked about wanting to move to California, finish school and become a paralegal. It’s so funny. I’ve accomplished all of that. I will never forget Avenues. It’s in my heart.”

Thank you Grace for catching up with us, and congratulations on graduating college!
