"This is a quick note for now to say a huge THANK YOU for your visit to Reading and all the wisdom, knowledge and understanding you brought with you for our group. After you left we stayed to talk about next steps; the enthusiasm in the room was amazing and exciting to see! I'm sure we'll be reaching out again - soon. You'll be hearing about great things happening in Reading!"

"We have been leaving violent men out of productive services for too long. I have personally felt and witnessed it. This training has been very eye opening and has confirmed my beliefs. I take with me a new approach with supportive handouts which I will present to my supervisor and executive director. ¡Les doy las gracias por este gran entrenamiento! Adelante Jerry, Ricardo y Alianza!"
