Success Story

Success Story

“The house was my support system. I had friends at college with a similar upbringing that I could connect to. It made me feel secure, took away my worries, and allowed me to focus on school. UMCH pushed me to be better, more independent, and taught me many life lessons. It’s like a family to me, one that leads me to grow in my relationship with God and be the best me possible.”
