“Thank you so much for all you have done for me. I am forever grateful! I’ll miss everyone so much! Thanks for being there for me and keeping me busy! I must say a special thank you to some of you for showing me kindness and love and most importantly the proper medical attention I so needed. You are special to so many here. Also, thank you to the doctors, as well, for your compassion and successfully getting me through this detox! To everyone else – thank you! And the kitchen staff – best chefs ever!”

“I want to express my thanks and gratitude to all of the techs, nurses, doctors, chefs, counselors and our awesome housekeeper. I have learned so much from all of you in these last weeks. I am going to miss all of you so much. You are all so caring and kind, even when we are having a meltdown. Your patience and understanding is such a blessing. I will never forget the people that have gone the extra mile for all of us. Each and every one of you has made a BIG difference in my life and I will always be in your debt. “3rd time is a charm!”


“I know how often thankless and unappreciated your job can be. As such, I want to express my gratitude and deep appreciation to all of you for the kindness, empathy, professionalism and great dedication you provide in your service. You have one tough clientele and it takes a lot of guys to do what you all do, day in and day out. You need to know you are making a real difference in the world, one addict at a time. You have made a huge impact on my life and I hope someday soon, I can come back and hug your necks without checking in! Rock on. Love and peace!”

“Because of EPIC, I am not just a mother, a daughter, a sister, an aunt, a niece or a cousin. I realize now that I am someone to a whole family who just want to see me get better and get ahead in life.”


“Joining Big Brothers Big Sisters of St. Johns County was one of those life altering decisions I made almost 5 years ago. I knew that I was blessed to come from two parents who were able to give me the love and guidance I needed to become a morally guided individual. i wanted to give that back to someone who needed it and wanted it. i wasn’t quite sure where to go, but was fortunate enough to find BBBS. The staff was so inviting and enthusiastic about matching us. They exceeded my expectations of how simple the process was! I would highly recommend anybody interested to give the staff an opportunity at making a match. I can guarantee the friendship and memories you make with your Little will last a lifetime!”
