“Liberty has been a game changer! Before her I was barely leaving the house alone and struggling to connect with anybody outside my immediate family. Since entering the program I have found new confidence and a desire to experience life. I’m reconnecting with old friends and making new ones.”– Aaron Neely
“Previously, I felt as if I was dying of a mental illness. Now, I feel like I am really living.”– Aaron Neely
