They say a picture is worth a thousand words. We think a heartfelt video is worth even more. Take a moment to listen to the parents, students and staff that comprise our Eckerd Connects' E-Nini-Hassee family.
“When I came to E-Nini-Hassee a few days before my 17th birthday, I had the belief that everything I was going through wasn’t my fault. I blamed a lot of other people for the mistakes I had made, and it was causing me to make a lot more destructive choices. While I was at E-Nini-Hassee, I had the opportunity to rethink all that I had done, and it helped me turn my life around. The program gave me the chance to quit my old lifestyle and start over, doing things that I actually wanted to be doing. I met people who changed my life and gave me motivation. They inspired me and pushed me to be a better person. Today, I’m happier with myself, and my choices, and my life. I’m so grateful I had this experience before I got in over my head. I love E-Nini-Hassee and what it did for me. I’ll never forget what I learned there. It will be part of me for the rest of my life.” — Olivia D.
The folks at every level of Eckerd have simply gone far above and beyond the call of duty…the life skills my daughter has already embraced and digested are exactly that — a game changer. Part of the Eckerd program is to reconstruct the foundation of these girls to give them a solid base to build their life around and effective coping skills to deal with the complexities of growing up in today’s environment. Honestly, I have never been associated with a more caring and talented group of people than the folks at Eckerd E-Nini-Hassee” — Keith K.
“Your program literally saved my daughter’s life, and I will be eternally grateful to the entire staff and counselors there. My daughter has stayed out of trouble since completing your program, is working and also preparing to graduate high school on time! All these things didn’t seem even close to feasible before she went to E-Nini-Hassee and was given the tools to help her make the conscious decision to turn her life around. Thank you, thank you, thank you for giving my daughter a second chance at a productive life.“ — Trish R.
My daughter has come a long way since leaving E-Nini-Hassee... I am so grateful that she had this opportunity to turn her life around, and I truly believe it was because of E-Nini-Hassee. I would hate to think where she would be now if she didn’t attend - a very scary thought I must say. You are the best! ~ Lisa C.
