You encouraged me to stop thinking I was just a victim and helped me to see I could help myself. The day I picked your number out of the yellow pages was possibly one of the turning moments in my life. 
It was very easy to make contact as you called us back immediately. We thought everyone was very polite and friendly. 
I found everybody helpful and non-judgmental and was made to feel good about myself. I can't thank you and your staff enough for all the help and belief you had in me. 
You helped me so much through a difficult time and did not sugar coat it.
