Stories From Skid Row: Marty

Marty successfully graduated the Christian Life Discipleship Program, but due to years of methamphetamine abuse, Marty’s teeth were still severely damaged. Thanks to our partnership with the USC Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry, we can help people like Marty restore their smiles at our on-site USC Dental Clinic—the only one of its kind at Skid Row. As you will see in the video, transforming someone’s smile is not merely physical—it transforms hearts, too.
