Merry (late) Christmas and Happy New Year! I wanted to send a note and an update on my son. I know he was a very trying teen while going through your program. We all shared in our fustrations with him together! He has now been home with us (his family) since May. We’ve had some minor bumps along the way but overall we’ve seen a night and day change in him. Our family moved in August and he has settled in well at school. His grades are great and he’s on track to graduate High School in June! I know you all put your hearts and souls into helping all the teens that come through your program without always finding out their outcome or getting any thanks for that matter! I feel this is a long over due Thank You from Me (Mom) for everything you’ve done to lead him in a positive direction. It truly takes a village (sometimes a large city) to raise a child and I am so very grateful for the infulence you allhave had on him and the other kids that go through your program. I know you all must have tiring days where you might thinks you arent getting through to the kids, but you all make a difference. Seeds are planted even if you don’t see those seeds grow. Your work is Appreciated! Thank you so much from the bottom of my Mama’s Heart….

Dear Depot St Staff, We just want to say thanks – our son is doing well partly because of the care and encouragement you’ve given him. We will always be grateful for that. Yours is a difficult and challenging job, yet you manage to keep kids physically and emotionally safe at a time when they have little control over themselves or their lives. Keep up the good work and thanks again.”
Hi,. My son recently spent 3 months with you before being (finally) sent on to a Residential Treatment Ctr. I was very impressed with your staff during his stay there. Please find enclosed a donation to your program. While you may feel free to use the money as you see fit, my hope is that you will use it in the following way. Your staff is your greatest attribute. I hope that this might help you to recruit, retain, provide continuing education, or in whatever manner might help you to keep and reach out to quality staff. This in turn helps to benefit all the boys who pass through your doors. I think you are doing great work and will continue to do so. Sincerely,  A Grateful Parent

Dear David, Thank you, once again for providing a workforce to assist with preparations for the Bennington Free Library’s 2018 book sale. The annual book sale is an important fundraising event for the Library and funds raised from the sale are used for programs, technology resources and operating expenses. Without the assistance of the 204 Depot Street Program, our ability to hold the annual sale and provide important services to our community would be in doubt. You, Emilio, Billy and your young charges worked very hard to move books to the Baptist Church and we are very appreciative of your effort. Thank you for helping to make it happen, and your ongoing support. Sincerely, Lynn Fonteneau McCann Director
Bennington Free Library
The staff always treated me with respect.
