My daughter attended your 2nd annual Rae of Hope retreat & I just want to let you know that you & the staff that put the retreat together really did great job in placing a positive reinforcement in our daughters life. Some live the retreat & don't put what they learned into play in their daily lives & others do. My daughter lived an experience with one of her friends that also attended the 2nd annual retreat that involved her friend not making very smart choices when it came to boys & Internet. My daughter would remind her friend of the Christopher's Club House session & reminding her what if it was a "large hairy man" on the other side or a law enforcement agent as they learned during the retreat session. I was proud of my daughter by reminding her friend in making smart choices in life. I don't think she wouldn't have attended the retreat, I definitely think she would have not known how to react to this issue & not would have reacted the way she did. My daughters friend's response was "you're right I didn't think about that". I'm not sure if you hear about any success stories after the retreats, but I know for a fact my daughter had a positive learning experience by attending the retreat & I just want to say thank you for the time, effort & commitment you put for the young girls of our Coachella Valley. You and your staff are making a strong positive impact in them. Again, thank you & my daughter is looking forward to the 3rd annual Rae of Hope retreat.
