Building the United States of Effective Families (USEF)

“In the parking at Walmart, a teen yelled several times before it struck  she was yelling for me.  She told me she uses notes in her book every week at school.  ‘Phil, taught me that.’ She’s off probation now.  Mom popped out of the back seat and both gave me a hug.  They were waiting on her sister, who had just shoplifted food and was being interrogated by the police.  Can we reach her, too?”
