Sarah and Carrie graduated from our program in the summer of 2014. They were matched in June 2007, when Carrie was 11 years old. For the seven years they were together, they met almost every week. They did fun things together like baking and cooking in the winter, and they enjoyed walks outside and going to the beach in the summer. With the guidance that Sarah provided, Carrie was able to graduate from high school a year early and get accepted into a local college. She just finished her freshman year and did very well. Sarah and Carrie still continue to see each other almost every week, even though they are no longer actively matched in our program. Carrie was able to flourish and realize her potential because Sarah was such a strong support system for her in her difficult teen years. They will be lifelong friends.
