“I was sentenced to two years' probation. If there had been no Crosswinds for me to go to, my life would have been one of overall failure and much misery.”
"If it wasn't for Crosswinds, I would be a street junkie. Or I would be in prison. Or I would be dead... and that is a fact.”
“I dropped out in the eighth grade... I felt like my life was over. Then, I got sent to Crosswinds, which changed my life completely.”
