Bobbi came into our class and told her family's story in regards to domestic violence. It was very eye opening to the realities of intimate partner violence at any age and what could happen if young teens are not aware of the severity of abuse. She described how she did not get any help from local police or services so decided to do something about it when her daughter was killed. Now there is a law that has to do with dating relationships and protection from abusers. It was very inspiring to see what Bobbi is doing with her tragic story and I appreciate her taking the time to share her knowledge and give us advice.

Bobbi presented to a group of foster youth between the ages of 16 to 21 through our ogranization Independent Living Program with Arizona's Chidlren Association. Bobbi's presentation captivated the youth's attention and provided them with much needed information on dating violence and healthy relationships. Our youth reported that they enjoyed the presentation and some even reported recognizing warning signs in their own dating relationships. This presentation is great for all ages, but specifically for young adults learning how to have healthy relationships. We really appreciate Bobbi sharing her family's story to help prevent other families from having similar losses.

Great presentation to my high school class. My students were deeply engaged with Kaity's story and learned essential information about healthy vs. unhealthy relationships. Valuable!

I have had the pleasure of having Bobbi Sudberry representing Kaity's Way provide presentations at Paradise Valley Community College for all of my classes. As an Education faculty at PVCC I know first hand that these students are especially vulnerable to dating violence, plus as future educators themselves, they will need to know the signs that their students might be in an abusive situation.

Ms. Sudberry has been coming to my Marriage and Family, Cultural Diversity in Education and Parent Child Interaction classes for the past 6 semesters and each time she has made an impact on students' lives. Each semester she helps students who would not have otherwise found help.

Because of her/Kaity's Way's presence on campus, students have recommended her to the Counseling Department at PVCC and Bobbi will now be providing important training and information to the entire campus.



I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I am gathering more information on teen violence and abuse and am able to better extend my teaching after Bobbi presents to my class. Her story and information is a springboard to even more interest and learning.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Nothing at this time. Kaity's Way has been most accommodating to my classes and has been a wealth of knowledge.
