As a child I was placed here and it was the best thing that ever happened to me. These people are saving children's lives and saved mine as well. I staid for sometime in the 90's and now I am a productive part of society, with 4 children, a degree, worked for a major sport, and am a 2 time war veteran. If not for a new start here I am sure my resume would read much different. Ill never be able to repay Grandfather home for saving my life. All can I can say is thank you from the bottom of my heart and I love you all!!! I have overcome the "impossible" because of you!!!!!! If there is anything I can ever do to help please reach out to me. It would be an honor!
As a child in the early 2000's I went here it was awful..no love nothing is personalized and there's no real passion from the workers. It was just a job to them.. I'm older now moved to California started a business and started a family I came down here to visit today & it brought up so many memories of how I was treated & what I really needed when I was there..which really made me just want to knock on their doors and ask for a job... because the kids who go here really need someone who's walked in their same steps and came out on the other side Victorious . They need love and personalized care real attention to get to the root of the problem . Not just looked at as a bunch of mentally ill kids.. because all I was really missing was someone to truly care & to give me some tough love.
There Is another comment below made by Zavianna Day, all she said is very true i was there with her, not for as Long but we left around the same time. They brain wash the kids there into thinking everything is their fault and they have to act like the perfect little pet to be let go, you could only say or do what they wanted, any creativity or individualism was strictly punished
