Meet Bailey From Portland, Oregon

We couldn’t be prouder of Bailey. She is a shining example of the powerful impact that ALSO makes on the lives of those we serve. Bailey recently transitioned from our Children’s Home Program to our Adult Residential Program. An epic milestone for her and for the ALSO organization.

Bailey became a young woman before our eyes. Not because of us, but because she trusted us to help her become who she wanted to be.
