JVS changed my life. It gave me a routine again where I had to get up each day. I had some place to be, and I was held accountable. It helped me to see myself in a different light that I never thought I would see. Now, I love being of help to my coworkers and to every person who finds their way to Student Services.-Patricia, Administrative Assistant, UCSF
