"AFIC has worked with my Son, who was diagnosed with a mental illness, and I for over a year. This was my first time dealing with such a life altering event. AFIC and Mr. Willis stepped in to help me learn how to deal with my Son's diagnosis and provided my Son with coping skills. I highly recommend AFIC and Mr. Willis for anyone who is in need of his expertise."

"I have personally witnessed the transformations that happen with formerly incarcerated, homeless men, once they encounter the About Face, Inc., program. Upon entry, many have experienced "rock bottom" and are very broken in spirit. Once men are able to avail themselves of the services offered, many have gone on to lead productive, drug and alcohol free lives based on the principles learned from About Face, Inc."

 "When I asked, Ricke to be our guest speaker he did not hesitate to say yes. He encouraged the boys and emphasized that change starts with your thinking and gave words of motivation to the youth with one of his saying which states: what you don't face, you cannot overcome.
Ricke made a big impact on the boy's lives as a guest speaker and truly connected with the boys by being transparent and relatable."
