    Boys and Girls Town of MO in St.James was the best experience in my life. I have learned soo much about life and strugles we all face each day. Yes the therapy wasn’t any fun but in the end it helped me become who I am today. If it wasn’t for St.James Boys and Girls Town I don’t know if I would be who I am today.
