I am a single parent of 2, my son who is 17 and my daughter-20 years old. I recently moved here from Californail and I was having a hard time with my son and daughter. i wanted to expose my kids to a lifestyle less chaotic and a little slower than what we were used to, my kids however did not share my relief and started to rebel. I sought help from everywhere in this town but because of the ages of my children they were left out of the traditional system. I met Lazone and Keith and they met with me and my kids offered them a place to come and study, volunteer making sure that they knew someone in Topeka cared. They even found therapy for my son. I am grateful to them for all they did for me in my time of need
