“You gave me the discipline that I seriously lacked as a kid and the boys in your home now need the same thing. You and your staff are great Americans, to shape broken boys and mend them into fine men of character is very hard to do, but you and your staff do it every day. I owe you a debt of gratitude for the man that I have become.”

Aaron Lee Westfield Nestor, Sergeant, United States Army

“The staff here at MBYH really tries to plant a good seed to rebuild self-respect in the kids here. Honestly, I am touched by all the staff. They all inspired me to do better. Don’t settle for less, strive for the best.”
