Valerie’s House Friends Became Lifeline for Savannah After the Death of Her Dad
My name is Savannah, and I lost my dad about a year and a half ago in the beginning of 2019.
It’s been hard on me and my family. The first time I came to Valerie’s House, I was a little hesitant because I didn’t know anybody. But, when you’ve been here a while, your like, ‘you know what? These could be my new friends.’
It’s mostly always smiles on people’s faces when you enter, and there’s always a group welcoming. It’s just a very happy and positive place. You turn that grief, and that anger, and that guilt, and all the bad things into a positive and happiness.
It’s just… you never want to leave. Like, you never want to leave, and it’s always very happy. And you always leave with smiles on your face. You are probably going to ask your parents, ‘when can I go back?’
