The following are testimonials from survivors of violence and Men's Non-violent Education class.

“I feel that the men's Anger Management Group has helped me in many important ways.  I have come to understand and accept my role in being in the group and many things from my past relationships.  I have learned that how I act and react affect not only myself but my family.  And if not for the group, I would not have my family to come home to every night.  In the time that I have attended, my family has witnessed a change in my attitude and personality.  I don't feel any shame or anger in having to come here but an actually proud that I am taking an active role in my treatment."      Men’s Non-violent Education Class Member- Anonymous 

 “Thank you for hearing and caring about me.  There are no words to truly express my deep gratitude for all of your help and support during my time of transition.  Your agency remains in my daily prayers!  I hope one day I can give something back to you.”                   Domestic Violence Survivor~  Anonymous
