(PASADENA,CA, March 31, 2016) Stephanie Castillo hasn’t lived at Hillsides for more than 20 years. Yet it still feels like home.
When she visits, which she does regularly, she makes sure to see one person in particular: childcare counselor Lucy Garabedian.
“Lucy was the first person to nurture me,” says Castillo, 38, who lived at Hillsides Pasadena Residential Treatment Services program between the ages of 10 and 15. “I consider her my mom.”
