What people are saying…

“In a world of chaos, pain, and rejection, Little Sand is a refuge of healing and belongingness for hurting teen girls. As a 1990 graduate of the program, I can testify that the unconditional positive regard, and genuine love I received changed the trajectory of my life. I am humbled and grateful to have been a recipient of the Jahn's/Pepin's tenacious dedication (when I was least deserving.)“
