"During my time in MAPS, Michelle (MAPS Program Facilitator) would meet me wherever; jail, court, probation, fast food restaurants, my house, and even a tattoo shop. Throughout my time in this program I was taught how to embrace myself. Most importantly I was taught that I am William - not FASD. Before it was my introduction and most time people thought less of me - all of a sudden I could no longer do the tasks I was already doing. Through this program I have learned how to focus on my strengths, how to budget my money, and look for proper housing. Currently, I live w ith a supportive roommate and am extremely happy with where my life is heading."
