“I was a lonely, quiet, shy person before I started to come to Inside Out. I then realized that Colorado Springs was home because I found a safe place where I could be me, without being judged and to me that is a “home”. I have accomplished so much within the Colorado Springs community: I have been to panels educating others on bullying and LGBTIQ issues, I have had opportunities that I would have never had without the support from Inside Out.” Mack James, 18, Student, Youth Liaison at Inside/Out Youth Services
