What are people saying about us?
“Before I joined… I was in a pretty bad way, suffering from depression and a bunch of things and wasn’t having a good time. Because it’s a weekly thing that I really enjoy, I get to meet so many awesome people, chill out and have fun and perform, and do things that I am passionate about.”
“You have provided me with a place where I feel undeniably safe, but also a place where I have made friends and contributed to something that extends beyond myself. This is a feeling I have never found elsewhere, so I thank you for the wonderful light you have brought into my world.”
