As a board member and volunteer at some of the program sessions, I have been able to see the proof of how this organization has touched my life as well as other women within the community. Because I know the CEO personally, I know she has a heart to help others and possesses the creativity and motivation to strive towards completion of any assignment despite the obstacles that a set before her. Face to Face Enrichment Center has grown beyond all expectations and can easily serve as a blueprint for awareness organizations that are dedicated to issues that plague women. In my opinion, Face to Face Enrichment Center has such a solid foundation that it has the potential to expand services beyond the Ascension Parish border. It has proven to be a worthwhile service which has educated, encouraged, enlightened, and exposed women who may have otherwise been unaware of deadly diseases which are prevalent within the Ascension Parish Community.
After falling on hard times and nearly losing everything I had, I was informed about a program that Gabrielle's organization offered called the SMILE Program. Through the program, single mothers in need receive home furnishing items. After signing up for the program, I received a bed, dining table, and kitchen appliances. I was and still am eternally grateful. As a single mother, there are times when I don't know which way to turn and it's going to know that there are people like Gabrielle that can be called on to assist those who are truly in need. Face to Face Enrichment Center is a blessing!!!
Face To Face Enrichment Center has changed my life tremendously. Being able to work with many diffenrent women that take time out of there busy schedule to come help support Face To Face is so heart warming. Taking part in many different awarness programs and working with the youth aswell has been overall an exciting experience.
I've had the opportunity to observe Gabrielle Johnson "Gabby"as she started this venture with a prayer and dedication. She continue to give her all to everyone she serve. She is passionate and committed to improving the lives of others. I had the opportunity thru Face To face to travel to a World's HIV/AIDS conference. This was a reality check for me. There is so much to do in this area; networking with other organizations and finding that Face To Face is on the right track in tackling some of these issues. I worked with Gabby at Health Fairs, whatever avenue available to get the word out about improving lives, Face To face and staff is ready. I'm glad to be a part of this organization.
I met Gabby Johnson at a prayer breakfast last year in Dec. After meeting he I've had the pleasure of being invited to come out and speak to women and teens about how I have been living positively with HIV for the past 8 years. It has been an rewarding experience working with her. We've done a few outreach, healthfairs together. Gabby has opened many doors for me to speak to others about how I live. Although many are not as involved as I am Mrs. Johnson has helped me to help others make a difference.
After meeting Gabrille Johnson some five years ago, I did not know that we would one day be working side by side. I later found that we shared like interests in helping those in need whether young or old. She moves about like a quiet storm, slowly seeking out life disparaties that have touched her life and the life of those around her. In a desperate attemt to address and annihilate problems such as; HIV/AIDS, STD, teen pregnancy, domestic violence and low self esteem that have affected and effected this community, Gabrille have devoted countless hours of dedicating herself through providing education, motivation, and awareness. I am proud to be mentored by her and working on this great team here at Face to Face Enrichment Center. As a Youth Defy, and HIV Outreach Coordinator working here at Face to Face, I have seen the compassion that Gabrille show each of the clients that have come to F2F for services.I know that there are greater things in store for Gabrille Johnson and The Face to Face Enrichment Center.
I have had the wonderful pleasure of working with Mrs. Gabrielle Johnson. She has served as a supervisor to me, a mentor, and in so many positive capacities until words cannot express how much she has assisted my family and me. As a domestic violence survivor, I had to relocate to Louisiana for safety reasons. I left with only what I could stuff in a suitcase and take on the plane. I managed to find an apartment but had no funiture whatsoever. Mrs. Johnson, and her organization, was so kind to not only donate furniture and supplies for every room in my apartment but she and her family took time to deliver and set up the funiture. I was so overwhelmed with joy until I cried for two weeks after I received the unexpected gift. I am so very pleased to have met Mrs. Johnson and the work that she is doing through her organization. She is truly and inspiration and serve as a mentor, confident, and is an agent of change. Sincerely Dr. Tonja "Tee" Lee, PhD
I partiicpated in a Formum on Domestic Violence against women. The entire event was well planned. The Exective Director, Ms. Johnson was organized and prompt. She faciliated the flow with the speaker and the question-answer period. She made everyone feel that their response was just as important as the the next person. We received gift bags and refresments as a complete program package. Face to Face Encrichment Center is a place that I have invited my friends and family to experience to enhance their lives on various topics and to receive needed services. This program is awesome and is much needed.
