Client Testimonials

 

Will,

 

Congrats! You're doing life saving work - I will always be grateful that you helped with my son...and guess what, he graduates this May from high school (back to straight As!) and off to Alaska for a summer of work & adventure before moving on to EMT training. Many thanks for what you do.

Will,

 

I was referred to you by Douglas Bodin and I would like to thank you for your help escorting my son to Utah.  We had a very small window of opportunity and your organization made arrangements and coordinated everything in just a couple of hours.   I put my trust in you and you did not disappoint, in fact you exceeded my expectation with your professionalism and support.  You met my son while he was very vulnerable and scared and you helped to ease his tension and fear by treating him with dignity, compassion and respect.  I am appreciative and extremely grateful for your contribution to our family and to all families in crises.   


Thank you very much,

Jennifer

Molly Barron,

 

You have provided us with many urgently needed resources to support our Zach; none proved to be more important to me than your recommendation to contact Adolescent Guidance Services. At a time of great emotional pressure and distress for me, Victor Lopez of AGS performed with extraordinary competence and sensitivity. As you know, the logistics of moving Zach out of our home last Saturday morning were complicated, and I felt that the stakes involved in getting this right were very high. Victor’s patience, calmness, and flexibility went far beyond what I expected. He listened; he advised; he delivered on everything that our family needed. He promised that he would treat my son as if he were his son. He made good on that promise.

"In this time of diminishing resources, it's important to have services like AGS. I was very impressed with their non-violent crisis intervention and the flexibility they provide. I felt confident that my client received the most professional, supportive intervention during such traumatic crisis. I highly recommend AGS to any families or professional agencies that need smooth transaction" - Marti Pollock, Psychotherapist

"I would like to thank AGS and your staff for a most professional and reassuring experience with your escort service AGS provded from the moment we first talked with your staff on the phone to the final follow-up calls...We received the most dignified care imaginable...Our sixteen year old son was treated with respect, courtesy and compassion..."The thought of "intervention" can be a frightening and dreaded image for parents...We had alot of resistance to the idea... in actuality, this was the easiest part of the process. We cannot thank AGS enough for making this critical moment in our lives and in our son's life one of complete ease and grace. It has enabled us to move forward with our son's transition with confidence and without regrets... "Your staff and AGS are angels in our moment of need." - A Grateful Parent

"The decision to use a transport service was very unsettling for us. The staff at Adolescent Guidance Services could not have been more supportive and caring. They explained the process step by step. They treated our daughter with respect, compassion and kindness. The AGS team coordinated their staff carefully in order to meet our daughter's needs and interests. The staff was professional and genuinely caring. They made a very difficult time in our lives less stressful." - Sincerely, Rich and Penny, Massachusetts

"I would like to take this opportunity to highly recommend Adolescent Guidance Services. In late July 1999, your fine organization escorted our son to Utah.

"I would like to thank you for the way you handled the situation with my daughter this past weekend. You and your people showed the utmost professionalism as well as compassion and consideration in dealing with a 15-year-old going through an emotional crisis. You can use me as a reference any time. I would be happy to recommend you to anyone needing your services." - Sincerely, Dennis Sacasa

"On behalf of my third grade class, I would like to thank AGS for your generous donation. Taking field trips in today's economy is quite expensive. Your donation will greatly defray the individual family expense and will help a number of needy students.
Please extend my gratitude to all the individuals that made this donation possible."
Sincerely, Ms. Petronis ( El Crystal School)

Hey Victor,

I know today is a busy day for you. I wanted to let you know Joe is doing pretty good. Thankfully most of the kids aren't home and I can patiently handle all the issues that come up. I know he learned a bunch. He has a much better handle on his communication skills. We will work on an education plan this week.

I need a personal assistant and think you should come and keep all my boys straight. tee hee. Seriously, wish I had one of you. Joe connected with you. He even told his sister he "bonded" with you. Thank you thank you thank you. I am going to encourage him to keep in touch with you.

The experience was incredibly intense and after telling his friends of his experience, he has a sense it was too big of a program for his little offenses. He said the other kids had been to many programs before that one. I said....your first and your last. Wonder if he expected me to wait till he was arrested or passed out high as a kite somewhere.

Victor, from the first hug when you came to pick up Joe (the worst day of my life) I knew I could trust you even more than I thought through the conversations we had. Your service is ......fantastic, incredible, wonderful. Such a crappy time in life dealing with that and to have you on our side makes all the difference. Thank you again and again.

Ruth Ellen

Hello Victor,

Just a note to thank you for your service. Will and Tricia did a great job. They were so professional and helpful to us in this difficult time. They just knew how to handle a delicate situation. The frequent updates with each leg of the trip was so reassuring. I certainly made the right decision in selecting your company for the transport. Also, thank you for your generous discount with your fee. This is all so costly, emotionally and monetarily and you took off some of the burden. I have only heard a few bits about how Morgan is settling in, but hope to hear from her therapist soon. If the situation arises I will reccomend you highly. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Please thank Will and Tricia for me.

Sincerely, Janet Payne

Victor,

 

My family would like to thank you for a job well done. The local police was not helping and our son would simply run if we were to find him. We were desperate. We hired you at 10:00 a.m. Thursday and our son was found and transported on the same day. You and your associate were professional, patient, and gave our son respect when you got him. Your prices were reasonable and you were always accessible 24/7. I would highly recommend your company. Thanks for making our week of hell turn out positive.

 

Regards, Brian
