Our Clients & Participants
I’ve learned so many valuable lessons at Florence Crittenton. I’ve learned that it is okay to cry when I’m feeling down. I’ve learned to love, and I’ve learned to overcome loss. I’ve learned to forgive not only others, but myself as well. Although I have lost a lot, it doesn’t mean that I should be lost as well. I know now that I have a future. I know now that I AM somebody. That I WILL make it in this world. And that I CAN survive.
I have learned to work with limits, accept love, and have a better understanding of myself.
After years of treatment for my daughter, and 4 different therapists, we finally feel like we are getting to the real issues.
I have struggled with depression and anxiety my whole life, but now I feel like I have hope.
He was so angry, but now we have our relationship back.
I have been attending Heat Up Topeka program for about 2 years now. For me, this program has helped me take time away to really care for myself. I have met so many good people thru this program. The instructors of all the classes are so supportive and motivate you to keep going, even when you feel like lying on the ground. It has been great learning new workouts along with how to eat healthier with foods I never thought I would like. Being a parent of 2 active kids, this program has also given me light to look at life differently. When I leave the class, I am always sweaty and smelly, but I feel great knowing that I am making myself feel better, not just on the outside but also on the inside and for my future.
