  • Like most teens, our son doesn’t listen to us. This [youth] program allows him to live his life and have privacy… while also getting support.  

  • Your organization gave me a home and amazing support when my mental health issues became such that I could not live at home anymore.  Upstream gave me a sense of independence and an enormous amount of support.  

  • I learned so much from the case workers at Upstream and I am forever grateful to the organization for helping me recover from my issues and get my life on track.  Thank you so, so much.
