OBHC Impact Stories

Impact stories are written about, and occasionally written by, our OBHC residents. In these stories, readers can discover how we are making a difference in the lives of these young people. If it were not for the generous, ongoing support we receive, none of this would be possible.

New stories are added each month, so check back for updates, and share them with your friends. The most recent stories are posted at the top.
A Good Start-read April's story

A Good Start

“I was terrified at first... Pretty soon, I got used to things. I figured out who was who, made some friends, and learned the rules. I’d never really had rules before, so that was new and kind of annoying, but it was also good for me.”

Catching Her Breath

“It actually wasn’t my idea to come here,” says Kacie, “but I’m glad I did. I needed to get away from all the drama and think about the choices I made that got me into the situation I was in so I won’t go there again.”

Bully to Bully - read Linda's story.

Bully to Buddy

“They do a good job of making me feel important, like I was meant to be here, and that helps my self-esteem. With them, I feel welcome, wanted and comfortable. They’ve made this home for me.”

Seizing Every Opportunity - read Zoe's story

Seizing Every Opportunity

For now, Zoe is content to continue growing and learning at OBHC. “When my grandmother first brought this place up, I didn’t like the idea. I do think I’d like to stay at least a year, though, just to stay on the right track and see what other new things I can try.”
