A Fresh Start

Sidney’s story

Meet Sidney, an easygoing 19-year-old with a contagious, goofy grin and her own subtle brand of humor. She’s the kind of person who can light up a room just by being in it. She might seem quiet at first, but she’s quite the conversationalist once given the chance. Behind her smile, however, lies resilience tested by far too many tragedies. Read Sidney’s story.

Your Impact
