The Guest Speaker was Rhoda Banks, LCSW. Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton also spoke and offered a word of encouragement to the graduates.
While at DH, the residents received discipleship training, Bible study classes, life skills instruction, and job readiness skills, among other things. Randy Faust, Axel and Bruce are all now employed full time.
