“BRRC helped me and my mom feel like people cared about the bullying that was happening to me. They had a magic show for kids who have been bullied so we can feel happy and cared about. Tom goes to school meetings with my mom so she can have support and have a louder voice to help me and other kids feel safe at school. I’m glad we have had all the help because school is a lot better for me now and I actually like it.”

“BRRC is an amazing organization, who provides support to some of the most vulnerable individuals, in what may be their greatest time of need. Dru and Tom are two of the most caring individuals, who can relate from their own personal experience to the pain and struggle that is inflicted upon victims of bullying. They offer a wealth of knowledge to others who are facing a ‘battle’ of their own, and standing up to bullies.”

“BRRC just made me feel safe. Like I have somebody on my side with my bullying problems. I am not alone.”

— 6th grade student

“My son was bullied at his former school. He has really benefited from getting to know other children who have gone through similar experiences as him. The programs the kids participate in help bring them all together and learn from each other. He has learned about what being an upstander is and he never had been exposed to that at his former school. His former school really did nothing to teach students to stop the bullying. This is a fantastic organization.”

“I found Bullying Recovery Resource Center in the darkest time in my family’s life. My son was being relentlessly bullied at school. I didn’t have the knowledge or education to fight back and protect him against the school, who was telling me it was conflict, not bullying. BRRC stepped up and spent countless hours on the phone with me, validating my concerns, sitting in School meetings with the District, and advocating on our behalf, when I was too emotionally drained to do it myself. Most importantly, BRRC educated me on the difference between conflict and bullying and provided me with the knowledge and confidence I needed to effectively advocate for my child and help other parents advocate for theirs.  BRRC spares no time or expense when it comes to protecting children. They have truly changed our lives.”

“You helped me get through this past year and that means more than you will ever know.”

—High school student

“Our son experienced bullying by a few students at his former school and was suffering some trauma from us having to quickly remove him from that environment for his safety and self-esteem. Not only did he regain confidence, he built relationships with some of the older kids, becoming part of their healing process.  The BRRC’s mission of showing kids the “good in the world” has truly been a beacon for us.  Our son regained so much confidence, that later in the year, he stood up for another student who was being picked on because of a disability.  We really feel that BRRC has made a big difference for our son.”

— Middle school parent

“As parents, also traumatized by what we found out our son had been going through, we were relieved to learn that we weren’t alone. The parent group has been a safe place to confide with others on our experiences.  It has allowed brainstorming and problem solving, and perhaps most importantly, healing to occur. BRRC has made a difference and we feel strongly that a program like this can have a unique and lasting impact on bullying in schools.”

“It has been an honor to work with you. I am looking forward to your organization going to the next level.”
