sniff, sniff, touching and eye-opening story about chicago’s new program aiding high school students

not only to graduate from high school, but to stay alive.  article in ny times by susan saulny.  students are paired with an advocate to call on for help 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, year round – 258 students were shot in chicago last year.  currently there are 210 students enrolled in the program, it has been so successful that it will be expanded to 1500 students next year.  thank you advocates and students in this great new program!
