Parents from time to time send letters of appreciation for the life changing results God has had in their lives. Our team is always encouraged by them. See what this family had to say.
“We just wanted to thank you and Trace for following God and starting Shepherds Hill Academy (SHA), and for continuing to provide a safe place of discipline and healing in a God centered atmosphere. We can’t imagine what we would’ve done if SHA wasn’t available. We looked extensively and talked with many people and facilities. There was no other choice, no better place for our daughter and we knew it.
From the very moment we arrived, you and your staff took the time to hear us and listen. You didn’t act like you had heard it all before or knew the situation better than we, or treat us like we were the reason our daughter was there. We had already walked quite a road by the time we made it to you and we were worn and tired. It was hard to drop off our daughter and leave her at another strange place especially after all she had been through, and all of the shifting from here to there before her adoption just 5 years previous.
The excellent communication from the program manager made the transition much easier. We could tell from our conversations that she was able to truly discern and was getting to know our daughter and the things with which she struggled. She wasn’t a number or a job, but a person that was truly cared about; and she was being challenged and disciplined in ways that were for her good, and out of love.
The office staff must be commended as well. When calling in, the phone was answered right away. If the person didn’t know the answer to a question, they found someone who did. I could go on and on. It has been very clear that you guys do things right. From the staff that you hire to the policy you implement in your care of our children. Thank you all so much. We don’t know what is to come with our daughter, what choices she will or won’t make, but we know she has had her best opportunity because of her time at SHA.
God bless you all as you continue the journey.”
