How we help those in need:
Dean credits the program for helping to change her life. "Before I came here, everything revolved around drugs. Now it doesn't. If I have nowhere else to go, I can always come here."
Tara, another teenage girl, agrees. "I used to lie a lot. They taught me not to do that. They are always here for you anything I need. I love the staff everybody's nice."
Another client wrote in a letter to staff: "I've never had anyone, a stranger at that, care so much about me and my well-being. You fought for me, for what was best for me ... my opinion mattered to you. You didn't give up on me and that alone means so much to me. Being at Hutton House was one of the BEST things to ever happen to me."
