Success Stories

PJ is a guest poet and former youth advisor to Art from Ashes’ board of directors. We first met PJ in 2009, when he was living in residential treatment at Denver Human Services’ Family Crisis Center (FCC), because of his own mental health struggles as well as lack of a safe and supportive environment in which he could live with his family. PJ left FCC in 2010 and went on to an independent living situation; became an Art from Ashes guest poet and board advisor, representing our agency to the community at large.

Today he is a well-developed young adult, with his GED complete, enrolled in college classes, working as a youth advocate with the Guardian Ad Litem’s office, married, and the father of a beautiful baby girl. On his arm he has tattooed “Art from Ashes,” because he says that this agency saved his life.
