Dear Friends,

The other day I received a phone call from Vera, a now 25 year old living out-of-state with her two year old daughter. Vera began the conversation by saying she was just thinking, with the holidays approaching, of those in Daytop. After about a minute, I said to the young lady … "wait a minute, is this the Vera that was in our Mendham center ten years ago? Is this the 15 year old Vera that came to us literally kicking and screaming with every other sentence being get me out of this place and I hate this place?" Vera started laughing and then, a moment later, she began to cry. Vera told me that she was calling because she always remembers Daytop at this time of year and wanted to express her gratitude to the Daytop family who made her Holiday Season of 2003, a loving and memorable one. Vera continued by saying, she was so very grateful because she could now provide those same memories to her precious two year old daughter. This was something Vera never dreamed of 10 years ago.

This is but one of many stories at Daytop. By year's end over 500 young people will have been helped at our four Daytop treatment centers. Countless more family members will get their loved ones back and our communities will be much better served.
