"After my second group meeting I realized many of the benefits of being in a group, like being with peers; being with adults who allow me to have my feelings without telling me how I should feel; and having a time, once a month where I know, even though it isn't easy that I can and will face the pain and work through it."
-Participant from the School Outreach Program
"Thanks for keeping Lory's Place open for us."

"I like having a school group, because I can talk about my dad and no one will get mad at me, and I won't make anyone sad."
