Madonna Place, Inc.
March 14, 2011

I have been on the Madonna Place Board for two years. I am continually impressed by the staff and leaderships' drive to improve the services they provide to at risk families. Whether it be strategic planning, training, marketing, results based accountability, or facilities refinement, I have witnessed Madonna Place taking all necessary steps to be here to improve families and protect children of eastern Connecticut .

Luckily we both have supportive families that were there to help us and did not really need to use Madonna Place's services; however, I know we would have found the support invaluable if we had to have been doing it alone.
