Marcus, a St. Louis native, was 17-years-old when he came to us while living on his cousin's couch in Bowling Green. He enjoys cooking, playing video games and basketball. He wanted a place of his own and a chance to finish high school. We educated him on independent living, healthy relationships, managing money and internet safety. He earned a driver's license, registered to vote, finished a year in high school, and became more positive in his decision making.
