I wish there were more programs like your organization have displayed. Keep up the excellent work that you've done being a great asset to our at risk youth

Gateway Charter School Teacher

One of the 8th grade students was so affected by the performance that her Mom had to come pick her up. I saw Mom in the office at pick up and she said how wonderful it was that the students were able to experience the performance and although her daughter was upset, she knew it had started a much needed and difficult conversation.

Gateway charter School Counselor

As a daughter of an incarcerated father for 10 years during my youth, I fully understood the father's and son's emotions and circumstances. It was heartfelt and emotional and moved the children to tears who fully related to incarcerated parents. I would recommend all schools to benefit from this presentation.
