An important part of our mission is to support at-risk young people so they can find a pathway to success—not just during their time in UMYH programs, but as they transition to independence and adulthood. We are proud to feature a young woman who found direction to a brighter future through UMYH.

“UMYH provided me with support during the most difficult time in my life and continued that support after I left the program. They helped me learn life skills and build positive relationships.”

Tabitha was placed at UMYH in 2017 through DCS and remained in placement for 6 months. During her stay at the girls’ home, Tabitha was a role model resident and completed the residential program. After leaving UMYH, she graduated from Castle High School. Tabitha recently turned 22, is now the mother of a 1-year-old boy, works at Premier Tan, and lives in her own apartment with her boyfriend and child. Tabitha still keeps in touch, and even visits us with her baby from time to time!

Congratulations, Tabitha! We are so proud to be part of your progress, achievements, and the beautiful life you are living today.
