A.S.A.P. Director Terri Gainer believes that programs like A.S.A.P. are can help mold a child's future.
"Well when you see kids grow up and their successful and go to college and produce good things and do good things with their lives that's what it means", says Gainer.
A.S.A.P. partners with the community to provide a range of services and resources for any child in Bay County that needs an after school program.
