Review for Arouet Foundation, Phoenix, AZ, USA
To whom it may concern,
I cannot say enough good things about the Arouet Foundation and would also like to say them in person or give a speech. This organization has helped me achieve what I like to call a "normal" lifestyle which has been my main goal for the past 15 years. I was never able to achieve this status on my own as I did not possess the correct tools and thinking patterns that are necessary to move into a world that I did not know and now I am living free and loving life and so blessed to have met Ms. Shawn Lamb and her team. I live with a new thinking pattern that I share on a daily basis to anyone who will listen and that is "Thinking with the end in mind". This pattern is imperative if you want to succeed and remain free. All you have to do is stop for a minute while making a decision and see how important or where this decision would affect you in the end. If the affect is nominal to zero, then take the time to see if it will impact your normal life in any way, shape, form, or fashion. In the end, I will not look back and think of the day I decided to commit a crime, but I may look back and think how my behavior affected all the people that are dear to me. I also want to mention that I would still be in Federal Prison if it were not for Arouet, Televerde, Ms. Lamb, and Mr. Boothe. They supported me through 6 rough years and even came to my court date to speak on my behalf. I would not have been released without them and I know that I am living a life that they can be proud of by lending a helping hand. The program also got me prepared to re-enter society and have up to date current methods of communicating and working with others that had been stagnant for so many years. I could never live long enough to repay Arouet. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to let everyone know how special this organization is and how much they have helped me.
