Program Testimonials

Hello –


I wanted to thank you and Dave again for allowing me to serve at CMF and assist with your program.  I am learning a great deal about myself, about cause and effect, and about forgiveness. Every visit challenges some aspect of my belief system.


I also wanted to share some feedback from the guys. I asked them to share with me what they liked about your program and to compare it with other programs they have attended. Their response was very enthusiastic and unanimous.


Vanessa – I know that you are aware of the value you bring to the incarcerated and their families, but I want to share what I learned from their response. The men shared with me their gratitude for your sincere commitment to serving them; for bringing them frontline news about parole boards and other helpful information. Your selflessness connects them to you, your caring makes them feel valued, your message of hope inspires them to seek change and growth. You are truly doing God’s work.


David – you are a walking and talking example of what is possible. Being “one of them” is priceless. The men hold you in high regard and speak of you with reverence.

You guys are the best as far as offering support & understanding goes! I totally appreciate it. Best news ever is that they found him SUITABLE!! His commissioner was an older black man w/ a last name of Anderson I believe he said. Such relief, but now the wait for the governor’s decision...
