Testimonials

(From a mother of a former client)

Hello! I have moved into my own place — finally — left Josh on his own, but I’m only 45 minutes away! I think he has done really well and coming up to 1 year on July 18th. He has stayed in touch with several of the “guys” — Shane has been a worry — “up and down” and in and out of “trouble” with drugs. I give Josh a lot of credit for being supportive. I’m so grateful to all of the people at SCHC who helped me getting Josh there and all of the follow up help — Sara is a real “gem”!
