Before coming to the PAYH, Jake seemed to be outgoing and adventuresome. But inside, Jake was lost. He was battling addiction and becoming more and more separated from family and friends who loved him. He came to the PAYH in September of 2009. While at the home, Jake was forced to take a long, hard look at himself. He had an experience with Jesus that changed him. When he graduated in June of 2011, he was a very different young man.
