Client Testimonials

MGT helped me by providing a safe environment to grow up and mature to adulthood. It provided counselors and houseparent’s that gave me unconditional love and guidance.


I was removed from my dad’s for sexual abuse and put in custody. After bouncing around to a foster home, charter hospital, and other groups, I was finally placed in MGT a scared, damaged, confused, and angry girl. MGT was a huge family to me.The staff, house moms, and especially the girls help me become the woman I am today.


I learned the importance of family. It didn’t matter that I wasn’t a biological daughter to the house mothers. They loved and cared about me. I told myself that when I have children I want to be close to them and I want them to know every day how much I love them and how much they mean to me.
