“I’ve been in Park Hill for almost twenty-six years. It’ll be twenty-six years in October. So, I’ve been here for a while. I’m kind of ill, so I just hang out around here. I love going to church but I haven’t been able to attend lately. Now, I just listen to it on my radio but when I start feeling better, I’ll make it back in there. I have arthritis in my legs and it’s been going on for some years. It keeps me from doing a lot of moving.   With all of this going on, I’ve started to enjoy reading. I’ve learned how to read better. It makes me really want to go back to school. It’s never too late, you know. Things were just going on, in my life, that kept me from going back to school. I feel like I can really do it and see myself reach my goals.” - Carolyn, Park Hill
