FailSafe-ERA Annual Center of Hope Fundraiser and Scholarship Gala: 
Brunch with a Purpose at the Fredericksburg Expo and Conference Center 

A very special thank you to Bryant Cox, BC Photography, for the great memories that we will enjoy for years to come.  Excellent photographer!   


Our presenters were phenomenal.  First of all I want to thank Barbara Gustavson for her amazing presentation on brain health vs. mental health and for being transparent.  What a gift to many and our community!


Secondly, thank you Jamie Milloy, FailSafe-ERA Reentry Director for helping our audience better understand criminogenic risk factors.  She is truly a blessing to our community, to FailSafe, and to the returning citizens!!! She has helped many overcome their life-altering challenges!  She gives them hope!


Rev (Delegate) Joshua Cole wears many hats and he wears them all very well!  The Reverend Joshua Cole spoke a mighty Word over FailSafe-ERA and our community will reap the benefits!  Thank you sir!!


Gaye Adegbalola put the icing on the cake.  Every song touched not only my heart but the heart of many.  She is awesomely special!
