He came to us at a time in his life when he needed good people to lead him in the right direction. Ultimately the group gave him the courage to talk about a crime he committed and felt overwhelming guilt about. He felt so remorseful that he turned himself in to face the consequences.
Even though he is no longer a participant, he has requested a CWC staffer continue to send him information on our support groups while he is detained. Tyrone is a prime example of how important RPSV's support groups are and how beneficial they can be to participants. Not only do they give you a place to vent, to talk about life, and to meet new people that are going through the same things you are, but if you're fighting with a moral dilemma like Tyrone was, it just might change your life!
For Tyrone, the peer support he received at CWC’s support groups helped him step up, take responsibility for his actions, and regain control of his life. He is truly a success story and we wish him all the best!
