B.H. and S.H, ages 14 and 16, Twin River Cottage, Missouri Hills, Missouri

(right)”On the outside, much of my time was spent looking at relationships in terms of who is going to fight me and who likes me. I’m good in school here. I get A’s; on the outside I get Fs. I’m in 8th grade and have been here for 9 months. I’m at level four or the highest privilege level.” -B.H., age 14

(left) “I was sexually molested at 9. There were issues of disrespect, fighting, drugs with my family. It’s amazing here. This place gives me a sense of self-respect and self value. I never had that before.” -S.H., age 16
