Alumna Story: Katrina

As a teenager I was isolated and felt very alone. I had few friends and my family was unable to provide any emotional support or comfort. I learned not to trust people. At The Attic the adults cared about me and for the first time I felt like I mattered.

Since my first day at The Attic, I have learned so much, not only about myself, but about my community. I learned just how resilient I am, and to believe in my potential. I learned that my voice matters and to give myself roses and credit for my experiences.

The attic has helped me in a lot of good ways, giving me a free cooked meal, providing me with resources and a therapist, but most of all the attic has given me a space to go when I need somewhere to just breath and have fun

When I stepped through the doors of The Attic, I wasn’t sure what I would find. I was looking for a place where I could be myself, peers who would affirm my identity, and role models to show me that my life could mean something. I found all of that and more.
