The Florida Times-Union: FEDERAL JUDGE DAVIS REACHES OUT TO CITY LEADERS ABOUT EVAC MOVEMENT

“The program’s success, which has impressed each of us in its ability to positively redirect youth, is directly attributable to the model and implementation created and shepherded by Amy Donofrio ...

I have heard each of you say we need to duplicate and expand the initiative, not fundamentally change it.”
— Federal Judge Brian Davis
