TTC Residential Lead Counselor, Volunteers of America Lavender Facility

At a very challenging and pivotal time in my life, your organization, Bel Inizio, offered me the opportunity to incorporate physical health and fitness into a means of emotional well-being. It was amazing to train for and run my first 5K. I have always wanted to do something like it but never had the course. During the course of training for the 5K I began to feel stronger both mentally and physically and soon began to utilize the idea of setting a long-term goal and making short-term goals to complete it….Thank you for everything Theresa. It really has been a beautiful beginning.


A Lavender Lady

Hello Theresa, thank you so much for all of the work that you do for our ladies. I know that their self esteem has improved immensely. Not just because of the improved physical abilities but mostly that someone cares enough about them to spend as much time and energy on them as you do. It works wonders for them!!!
