“LUCY gave me so many opportunities that I wouldn’t have been able to have without them. They exposed me to countless programs, speakers, trips and overnights that shaped the way I see the world and impacted how I live my young adult life and what I want to do, which is serve
and help others in my community. Before I became involved I was painfully shy and quiet, without many friends or activities to get involved in. After joining, I slowly came out of my shell slowly by surely. I have made so many friends and always have a place to go where I can be heard and stay involved with my city. Currently I’m part-time with the Camden Police Department but I hope to be fulltime with them soon. This past year I participated in the training to become a volunteer and pay it forward to new, younger youth. They will benefit from LUCY’s love and support, as I did."
