"Thank you for making your funds available to the clients of the San Miguel Resource Center. It's nice to know that even in hard economic times our agency can rely on support from other victim service organizations in Colorado."

"I want to thank you for assisting me with my stay in Colorado Springs so that I may attend the trial of the individual who took my Son Kevin's life! This is a very stressful time in my life and your organization has helped to relieve some of that stress for me and as I said I "THANK YOU" so very much...it is a blessing to know that there are individuals such as yourselves out there to assist people in a time of need!"
