“I came to the Last House after my life was in shambles. I was unable to live life on life’s terms. I wrecked almost every relationship that I had including the one with my family. I had gotten to a point where I was only living day to day, not caring about where my life was headed. After graduating the Last House, I gained new friendships and amended the ones I had harmed in the past. I wake up today with a sense of ease and I now strive to be successful in my life.”
