Ana Blanchard, Case Manager - Washington Heights
My Name is Ana and I am LIP! I used to be one of the girls who I now serve. I used to be there, in the darkness of this life and hate it as much as some of our girls do. But, I could not have survived a suicide attempt when I was 11 without a lot of help. It took me years to recover and get my life together. This is why I work in this wonderful program. Music & art helped me overcome my sadness and therapy helped me become who I am today…a great mom, sister, friend and a professional woman!! So, please, do not give up on yourself
