is safe."

"The Northport Buddy Club has meant the world to my son.  He is the happiest I have seen him in a very long time.  He connected with Paul immediately and continues to talk about what a great guy you are and how much he enjoys the Buddy Club.  He looks forward to each and every hang out.  He feels accepted and liked by the members of the group and they all treat him so respectfully.  As his mother, I am so grateful for this group and so thankful for the opportunity to finally be able to help my son feel wanted and needed here and to be happy with who he is.  I can say matter of factly that the Buddy Club not only changed his life, but saved it as well.  Thank you for all that you do for this group.  It is so heartwarming and fabulous to see such a young person devote so much time and energy to others….you truly are a very special gift to all of us."
