"I was at my wits end when I found you. My son was out of control and headed down a self-destructive path. You were so kind, empathetic and nonjudgmental that I instantly felt hope for my child. The choices you provided for my son were exactly what he needed. It was a hard decision, but I'm so glad I decided to send him to a school that was out of state. He is not the same person today! He is home, attending school and back on a healthy path. Thank you!!"
