“Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of your life. Tiptoe if you must, but take a step.” 

This month, we celebrate a very successful summer in the education department for the young adults in Wellroot’s Transitional Living Program! Education Coordinator, Mr. Naeem Callaway shares “I  am so proud of their accomplishments this summer. All the youth worked hard all summer long!” We have 3 special graduations to celebrate on their recent achievements:
