      Francis's Success

      "You can't change the past," admitted Francis, 17, "But you can change the future."

      That is exactly what he did when he arrived at Ozanam in October 2005 after failing in school, getting arrested at the age of 16, spending time in a juvenile detention center and later a Lawrence group home all within the course of a year.
