Our Mission is to Save and Transform Lives
"I've seen addicts on their knees shaking helplessly, I've seen sons and daughters steal from their parents, and I've seen families torn apart by the sudden death of their teen. I've seen it all. And after 40 years it still breaks my heart. That's why I do what I do. If just one more teen can be saved, then that's my job."Tim Chapman
