Our Success Stories

GRETCHEN'S STORY

It was an extremely effective and powerful experience for me. I can't think of any other step or program that is closer to what I believe justice is supposed to be. 

Mike's Story

She stays in her residence. Her kids stay in the same school. She does not become homeless. She does not have to move into a shelter. The landlord gets paid and has a good tenant. This is extremely rewarding to me. Everybody wins. My term for it… priceless.
