ABM helped Norris to get back on track and to rededicate his life to God! He was raised in the Church but drifted away. His time in the TLP gave him an opportunity to again delve into the Word of God. Norris learned about how to love himself and others.
Since graduating, Norris has maintained employment and continually visits ABM to "check on staff." He knows that this relationship is meaningful and extremely important for his future.
