Very shortly after moving to the Reading area, Driven became a part of my life. It’s been over 5 years now. I had an unstable household and in my mind there was no out. It got to the point where I didn’t feel safe and I hated being there. That was my big issue, but only one of many. The founder of Driven, Melanie Holland became my life support. I felt loved, hopeful, and safe when I spent time talking with her and confronting my problems. She was someone I could confide in; I was understood and never judged.  Looking back at my situation, I can honestly say that if it wasn’t for the help and support I received from Driven, I wouldn’t be where I am today. I feel like I have worth, like there is a bright future for me, and that I’m not defined by my past.
