There is some kind of magic that happens. They find the people who can see these troubled and difficult kids as the jewels that they truly are, people who are so committed that their case management doesn’t end at 5 p.m. Working with these amazing people, FLY kids ignite! Our kids come out of FLY programs with their souls and their beauty restored. ~ Former Chief Probation Officer, Sheila Mitchell
