What clients say
I would recommend for any individual. This place has literally saved my life. I came in a very broken and damaged little girl and now leaving as a strong independent woman. The staff was remarkable. They loved me till I could love myself. They understand my struggles and could relate to many of my issues. The house was beautiful and filled with positive, spiritual, and loving energy.
