"On behalf of the Phoenix House residents, I wish to say thank you for your wonderful contribution to our men’s "Self Esteem Day" you gave to us what no amount of money can buy; you demonstrated through love and action that even though we have made some wrong choices in our lives, we are valuable. You have given us hope and a reason to believe in ourselves. From the beginning to end your commitment was evident. Your motivational talk was uplifting and certainly gave everyone something to remember. For me it was truly inspirational. You have provided an incredible example of community service for others to follow. We wish to thank you again from the bottom of our hearts."
Mr. James Bruggeman, Resources Department Head
The Phoenix House Alcohol and Drug Rehabilitation Center
"Thank you for your tremendous contribution and dedicating your time and energy towards our Men’s Day of Self Esteem. Your efforts made it possible for 150 men from 9 area shelters to experience a wonderful day of transformation. We witnessed the power of hope and the invincibility of faith. Thank you for sharing your passion with us and empowering the men to face life with a renewed sense of dignity and enthusiasm."
Jerri Rosen, Executive Director Working Wardrobes
"A person first starts to live when he can live outside himself, when he can have as much regard for his fellow man as he does for himself. I believe we are here to do good. It is the responsibility of every human being to aspire to do something worthwhile, to make this world a better place than the one he found. Life is a gift, and if we agree to accept it, we must contribute in return. When we fail to contribute; we fail to adequately answer why we are here."
