Whether you are 6 years old or 17 years old, maintaining a healthy lifestyle while remembering to have an engaging, active and balanced youth is challenging. Spending time and making life-long bonds with people experiencing the same struggles is key to feeling fulfilled.

A second family is the only way to describe it!
