A Community That Cares and Grows Together
"I have always looked at Our Space as a ‘university’. When I say university, I mean a place to learn, a place to start fresh. Our Space is a safe place to conquer social skills, confidence, it builds character and makes one fearless when dealing with peers and the world we live in. You begin to grow and have the ability to face adversities in everyday challenges. Since joining Our Space three years ago, the quality of my life has forever changed me." - Dennis, Our Space Member
