My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Starfish Foundation Inc, Milwaukee, WI, USA
I am forever grateful for the Starfish Foundation Inc. and the work it allows clients to do. For myself it allowed the healing process to begin and continue. I grew up in a highly abusive and violent environment having experienced real trauma. I have been part of the Center For Creative Learning family since my Renewal weekend in 2005. Sometimes I am the student and sometimes I am a volunteer each time pealing back a layer of the trauma. I found a safe place to process, a safe place to discover innocence and a safe place to be me. At the Center I learned a deeper personal value and worth. I am worthy of connection and have a sense of love and belonging. Because of the Starfish Foundation Inc. each time I drive the 300 miles one way, I am able to navigate my life with more love and less shame than the time before.
They say a picture is wroth a thousand words, the first one represents how I felt showing up at the Center in 2005. The second represents the freedom I now feel having done and continue to do the work that the Starfish Foundation Inc. allows it's clients to do.
