Check out some of the testimonials that have been written about us from adult and teen community members who have attended some of our Education and Training Programs.

Adult Testimonials

“I asked Ms. Camacho if she would speak to our students about Healthy relationships and she came out on yesterday.  I wanted to inform you that she did a wonderful job and the teacher and students are still talking about her this morning.  They are wanting to know when she will come back.  Thank you again for having such a needed program and a wonderful and knowledgeable staff person as Ms. Camacho.”
     -Phyllis Northington, Social Worker, Frankford Middle School

“Hello Ms. Sheyla,
I want to thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to visit my classes today and share information about domestic violence.  You did an outstanding job!!  Your presentation of information was phenomenal!  Not only were you interesting, you were relatable and engaging.  I know how challenging it can be facilitating three long presentations back to back, but each time you seemed as fresh and energetic as you did with the very first one.
As a psychology professor and mental health advocate, I am very familiar with domestic violence.  Even so, the information you shared was fresh and well needed.  There was a plethora of information that I truly believe will be helpful to the students based on conversations they have shared with me.  Today was fantastic and I have you to thank for it.
Take care and I am looking forward to inviting you back, in the future, to share on other topics.”
     -Wanda Y. Moore, PhD, MA, LCDC-I, BIPP

“[Ryan] did a great job of engaging with the students on their level.  He was able to actively engage the students and get them talking.  Was patient and validating!  Presentation was great, and I wish we could have had more time to dig deep!”
     -Teacher, Memorial Pathway Academy

Thank you for your presentation today.  It was educational and helped me to better understand the world in which my children are living.  It also helped me to consider tools that will be valuable to them in facing these dangers and threats.
Will you please send me the PowerPoint slide deck you used?  There were great statistics and examples that I can use with my children and extended family.”
     -Bartley de la Houssaye, Emerson Process Management

Thank you for taking the time to go through your slides and the message that you delivered today at Emerson in McKinney.  I really appreciated your overall candor and the information presented.
I am interested in both the .ppt or .jpg slide decks that you use with school kids and the same you showed today for adults.
I have twin 13 yr old daughters and I would love to share this with them as part of what we already do to inform, warn and guide them through these online days we live in.
Let me know if you can send them to me.  I have cc’d with my wife’s email address as well.  With any luck maybe we can get you to present at a local church or community function.  Thank you again.
Best Regards,”
     -David Schmidt, Emerson Process Management

“Thank you Mr. Ryan for being very nice with me.  I’m that chick you talked to outside of Ms. ****’s portable.  What you said really got to me.  It was support, something I haven’t really had from anyone.  Your opinion and advice meant a lot.  I followed it and yeah me and the dude haven’t talked.  He just texted me today saying, “Hey, just making sure your alright?”  My response was I’m not sure, hey please delete my number.  I didn’t say why but the reason was because I miss him.  He has a girlfriend now.  They have been dating a month.  I think well I hope she’s happy.  I hope he’s happy and I hope everything is okay with him.  Even tho I’ve been getting worse every day, I still have hope thanks to you and I’m sorry if I keep being annoying.  Well, all I wanted to say is Thank you very much for taking your time and hearing me out!”
