I recently began working with TAKE A TRIP CHANGE A LIFE PROGRAMS and Caritas Smile, and I already have found a home as well as a hope to create a better tomorrow through this nonprofit. The experiences gained through this organization are so incredibly powerful and unique, and I am so thankful to be a part of something with such spirit, enthusiasm, and accomplishment. It's truly an amazing nonprofit.
