Review for Sheriff's Community Impact Program, Sacramento, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am so Thankful for the SHOCK program through the Sacramento Sheriff Youth Programs that I wish I could SHOUT it all out to the local area. I think programs like this need to be highlighted in the local news media to let some parents, teachers, etc., know that there actually is a program that is supported to help our At Risk Youth.

This has been heaven sent for our son and just in the right time. They came to our house, interviewed our son and my X-husband and I and he has been in the program just a couple weeks and I know when the 8 weeks are up, he will have more internal knowledge with what good choices and bad choices will do for him and his future.

I am an advocate for this program as well as all the staff involved. Specifically Sheriff Deputy Michael Saigeon as he has been in constant communication with us, allowing call's, emails, visits to my son's school and really made himself available even on his official "off hours time". This has given me a new look into the dedication of our Sheriff Department has to impact our local youth.

Thank you to the entire team, and to those who raised funds for this program to exist. I am happy to help in what ever way I can.

A Thankful Mom

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

I would make sure all local news channels mention this program as well as all local papers. It is a Non-Profit Organization and there should be more press about the IMPACT it is having on our local youth at risk. Also, the opportunity for parents to learn different tools with regards to working with their at risk children...it's a challenge and all involved will help for a successful future.
