When everyone else turned me away, I found the YMCA. They have made me a better person inside and out.

Teddy, a single father, and his 6 year-old daughter Shannon were alone and struggling badly, with no financial or emotional support.

Through community-based resources at the Y’s Bayshore Family Success Center and the commitment of Krysten, a caring Y employee, a father and daughter on the brink of homelessness now have hope for a brighter future, and access to a nurturing community.
