Abused and Abandoned, She Found Healing at Boys Town

Physically abused as a child by her alcoholic mother and ​several of her mother’s boyfriends, Kahla was placed into the foster care system, where she had difficulty fitting in. Things got to the point where Kahla was given an ​ultimatum: Boys Town or jail. Fortunately, ​​​​Kahla made the right choice and is now well on her way to reaching her true potential.
