"Shekinah has helped me in so many ways. I first sought their help when I was 18 years old and this enabled me to cope better with life. I am now 34 years old and needing support again I returned recently to ask for their help. I can honestly say that I wouldn’t be the person I am today without them, they are like family to me and I know I can always turn to them."
