Aldine YOUTH Makes a Difference

Posted on Jan 13, 2012 in News, Testimonials |

Here is a letter written to Sylvia Bolling, Founder and Executive Director of Aldine YOUTH this week.  This is a wonderful testimony of how Aldine YOUTH is making a life-changing difference in the lives of youth in their community.

Hello Mrs. Bolling,

 I’m not sure if you remember me. My name is Alan Swickey (name changed). I’m a Sophomore in High School right now. Back when I was in 8th Grade, I’d suffered from depression for a few years. My school counselor gave me a paper from Aldine Y.O.U.T.H. & desperately wanting help, my parents signed me in for Summer Camp on Stoney Creek and also On The Road program. Aldine Y.O.U.T.H. saved me. Thank you so much for opening my eyes and making me realize how beautiful the world really is. 

 Before, I didn’t believe in God. Now, I’ve come to see how powerful He is. Each day I try a bit harder to reach my goal of becoming a better person. Thank you, once again, for being that change in my life. There are people out there that never get this help and I’m so very thankful that the Aldine Y.O.U.T.H. Staff dedicates their time to helping those in need. Thank You. 

Sincerely,

Alan
