PROGRAM TESTIMONIAL

"I hoped to expand my knowledge and break through some comfort zones with guidance and assistance. Which I did, but the main thing I came to find almost immediately was a warm, welcoming community. A little family of squares on a screen, sharing a few similar steps in vastly different journeys in life. Some of which will be supports in my life, as well as me with theirs for a long time to come. There is a very unique bond I’ve gained with others who have very different struggles than mine yet have been some of the most supportive people I’ve met."
