Thank you for all the chances you have given me. You have a really great staff and I am happy I got to meet them. They have all taught me something, like to believe in myself no matter what. I thank you very much for being there when I needed you and you showed me I am able to trust someone. Before I came to OPA, I couldn’t trust people and now I can! ~ Resident, age 18
Because of Oak Plains, I finally have a life. You not only saved my life but helped me live ~ Resident, age 17
Thank you for caring when no one else did. Your patience and commitment have helped me to become a better person. ~ Resident, age 16
I just wanted to give you an update on my son. For the first time in 9 years, my son is doing amazing. He is working a landscaping/tree surgery job from 6am-4pm every day. He is paying for his own probation and court costs. He has been drug free for 90 days. I really wanted to thank your facility for all that you’ve done for me and for my son. . . . Thank you so much for your patience and guidance.
We both want to thank you so much for coming in on a Sunday to meet with us. The time you spent with us and showing us the facilities is much appreciated. We also thank you for the positive growth and progress we are seeing in our son! We left Oak Plains feeling encouraged and better about him than we have in weeks! It is such an overwhelming sense of relief to see him moving forward in a positive direction. You can tell that you are good at what you do and that you are working your passion! It is wonderful to see that and have it exampled to our youth. We feel he is blessed to be at Oak Plains and in your care. Please know that we support you wholeheartedly in helping our son. Let us know of anything we can do to help.
I’ve been in this profession for almost 7 years now, and I have never worked with the quality of folks I’m surrounded by here at OPA. The integrity, the professionalism and the absolute true sincerity and heart with which they work astounds me every single day and makes me so incredibly proud to be a part of this team that it’s difficult –if not impossible—to define. Working within this phenomenal level of character reminds me to rise up and try to match it every day.
Thanks to each one of you for all your help and mentoring this year with our students! They had a great experience! Looking forward to next year!
