What people are saying

I am often asked what life was like at Hetrick-Martin, and I say, ‘Picture the most supportive and caring place, throw in the most unique and wholly selfless people, with the most courageous kids.’ [Hetrick-Martin] helped me find a place to live; they helped me find a better way to live.
