What are they saying about us?

 

Tracey Thompson - Social Worker

We often hear the term it takes a village. The Joseph Project embodies the true definition of the meaning of village. Their professionalism, willingness and positive attitude have provided a steady anchor, especially during these difficult and challenging times. 

Jessica Birch - Teacher

The (Liberated Village) R.O.O.T.S. program has had a positive impact on students and our school community. Students are learning how to be better community members and strengthening themselves, all while having a safe space to process and discuss real-life issues that directly impact their lives. It’s something all students can benefit from.

Zajiante Graham  - Scholar

I have always been a top student but through the racism and unjustified treatment by my elementary school, I lost all trust in the schools. I no longer want to go to school.  The Liberated Village (UTB) has helped me re-engage with school and plan for my future. They stood by me to make sure that I was being treated like a human being. Today, I feel like I am a valued member of this community. 

Hanon - Scholar

We learned about anger, traumas, emotions, and so many other things. I used to have a hard time coming out of my shell and expressing my emotions like discomfort or anger, but this class helped me, everyone was nice and cheerful! 

Anna Graham - Parent

The Liberated Village (UTB) came into our lives at a time when our daughter was having trouble with school. They now support our son who had lost interest in school due to racism. Now both our children are doing well and fully engaged in school again.

Kari GoPaul - Parent

The Liberated Village (Joseph Project) has been a great circle of sisterhood through these difficult times from zoom calls to dropping off activities to keeping my daughter engaged with life. I really enjoy the parent groups and guest speakers. Joseph Project has been a light at the end of the tunnel for my family!
