Jayden Hamlet, Trenton PEERS Participant
I think my favorite thing about Millhill is the friendships I make with other young adults around my age and with the adults as well. Especially being in the PEERS program, there are people I meet that I will forever remember because of the shared experiences I have had with them. Knowing that there is a place where I can truly call these people I meet my second family really uplifts me.

MillHill is an organization that offers many benefits to support the development of children and families. Being part of Millhill has represented an extraordinary opportunity for me. The fact that I'm involved in the children's future academic success makes me happy. Seeing the smiles on every child under my care is priceless.
