Hello! This morning on my way to work, I heard about you on the radio. I live in Marion, Indiana. I am currently teaching at Northview Elementary School in Gas City, Indiana. However, I spent 8 years teaching in Marion at Frances Slocum which teaches predominately at-risk students. My husband and I love helping at-risk children and teens. We currently house 5 young men who come from similar situations. We also have access to a building that could possibly be the home of one of your next locations. I have my principal license and have been waiting for God to open the door in His timing. When I heard about you on the radio, I had to at least check this out. I would be thrilled to talk to someone about starting one of your schools on our property here in Marion. My number is 765-243-3621 and my husband is Todd at the number 765-243-3567.
Thanks for your time… Miriam Dalton
