Gary: Grateful Mom Thankful to Americans Helping Americans for Turning Son’s Life Around

May 21, 2019

After being kicked out of high school because of his behavior and anger issues, Gary is now back in school and his grades are even improving.

And his mom says he is helping around the house with the chores without even having to be asked – something difficult, if not practically impossible, to get a teenager to do.

Thanks to the supporters of Americans Helping Americans® we are able to provide grant funding to our partner in Gainesville, Georgia, L.A.M.P. Ministries. Now, Gary’s life trajectory has taken a major turn for the better.

L.A.M.P. works with troubled youth before they find themselves in serious trouble at school or with the law.

To help him take out some of his anger issues in a positive way, L.A.M.P. enrolled him in a gym where he has taken up boxing.

“He loves to box,” said L.A.M.P. executive director Mary Mauricio. “He says it has really helped him to stay out of trouble.

“His mom is so grateful to L.A.M.P. for our interest in her son,” she added. “All thanks to Americans Helping Americans® for making it possible.”
