The volunteers that came in were amazing and I can see myself and life different now. Ms. Lucy hit the nail on the head and I will be forever grateful. Anytime I get the chance, I tell others about how HOPE helped me. I don't care about people knowing I was in prison. I care about people knowing about Texas HOPE Literacy and how amazing it is.Emmie
Where to start? HOPE is wonderful. I learned a lot and met my BFF, Lorraine. I learned patience, consideration, about Jesus, and was a tutor. We really became a family and I know I have made lifelong friends. It's been 3 years and I haven't had any problems. I own a home and work for a doctor. I couldn't have done it without the HOPE volunteers (Ms Lucy, Ms Jan, Ms Linda and Ms Dale) cheering me on!Jaime
