“When I first came here, I was going through hard changes because I had nowhere to live. I was so happy that they (AHC) gave me a hand, It felt like they understood me. When I was in the hospital I lost my apartment, and they gave me a place to stay. I made friends with lots of people here, they helped me a lot. ”
