Review for Project Patch, Vancouver, WA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Project Patch, There is so much I would love to say about this place but there is just not enough time nor enough space to put all the words down. I was sent to Patch around '07. I hated everyone and was running away and becoming volient, even pushing and kicking my Mother. I didn't respect anyone nor trust anyone. I was angry, hurt, frustrated, and the list goes on. I tired commiting sucide several times, and I know if I hadn't been put in Patch, I would have either died in a fight or killed myself. Patch, the staff and the counselors completely changed my life around. Now I love living, my Mother and I have a relationship that I thought was never going to be possible, I can talk to her about anything and there is none of the frustration or angry on either side. There is just sooooo much... The kids, the Teenagers need your help soooo much. I would not be who I am today, nor would I be living the life that I am and be as happy as I am if it hadn't been for Patch and for the donors who helped pay to keep me at Patch to change my life around.
