Changing Futures, Changing Lives

Changing Futures, Changing Lives



From the very beginning everyone was so helpful, motivating and supportive, which helped make me want it more. If it wasn’t for the help and support that I received from not only my boyfriend, family and friends but from the staff from ALPS, YPIC, and AWC I wouldn’t be where I am today. Today I’m proud to say that I have my GED and am a licensed CNA, with knowledge in phlebotomy, and am employed by the local hospital YRMC.
