Endorsements

"I want to highlight your efforts and your leadership because as individuals will see this video online, as your people become aware, as parents become aware, their response might be quicker. Now, they may be more aware or ask a question they otherwise wouldn't have asked, and indirectly, without even realizing, you have been part of serving lives. I commend you to that most noble and amazing and impactful initiative that you have started. This is the very first one, and like most initiatives in the City, it is small small steps in the beginning, but I can see this growing so much with our youth and our community."
