“My experience at Action Front Center has been challenging and rewarding. I have been learning to grow with my peers.”
“My experience at Action Front Center allowed me to open up more and not be afraid. It allowed me to advocate more for myself and for my family. It empowered me to know that there is a lot of support and resources in many areas and beyond and how to help others.”
“I think that coming to ABC and gaining the skills as an advocate I took that to the next level and I have represented ABC on a global scale. ABC has done a lot for me personally.”
