My time at Valley Lake Boys Home was a blessing to me and taught me lessons that have long carried into my adult life. I went in a kid that had gotten in some trouble, and left knowing I had learned the right way to do things in my life. The relationships I gained with some of the staff are still intact to this day, and I appreciate each of them for the part they played in my life. The work this home does is wonderful, and the people that work there truly do care about making a difference, and it shows. VLBH will forever be part of who I am and what I have done since my short stay there as a teenager, and I will be forever grateful to them and the people who impacted my life.
