Blake, Ast-Mgr.

"Even after they came in and remodeled the apartments, people weren't actually any happier. They didn't talk to each other more, and they didn't do anything about their health. And that was 2 years ago...But after just 6 weeks of this program, there is more change than ever before. People are happier, they talk with each other, and they are moving, eating better, inspired to keep living with vitality."
