In my opinion, this is absolutely spot on. Seeing it in print, along with beautiful photography accompanying, brings me tremendous joy. I find the way you captured my paradoxical struggles and desires to learn and grow along the way to be an amazing potential teaching tool for others. You and your team's collective efforts have given Detroit a truly beautiful gift.

I was moved to tears! Your team did an epic job; the photos and storytelling is superb. Thank you so much, it was an honor to host your team. I feel you captured the entire “Network of Safety” model with such detail. You also embraced the true foundation of our work, for the people by the people! With deepest gratitude and bravo for hitting a home run!

Bittersweet has gifted us a digital tool we can leverage for years to come in both marketing and funding efforts. The most valued component was the experience with the creative team and connections made throughout the process.

I think the whole feature is amazing. It’s heavy and gritty, and captures the weight of the issue, while still pointing towards the hope, with professionalism and composure. It will be a powerful tool for us to advance the mission.
