“Club has allowed me to meet new people, make new friends and has helped me to cope with everything since moving up here. I enjoy coming to the Club, it is a place I feel safe expressing my feelings. I enjoy hanging out with Miss Kylan and my friend Mr. Isaac is always down for a game of basketball.”
