ABSOLUTELY NOT. We do not discuss need requests outside of the advisory committee and take very careful diligence to insure all needs requests are treated with the utmost privacy. We respect whole heartedly the personal nature of our mission. Only if you are willing and totally in agreement to share your experience and testimony, would we do so. Of course we request discernment while participating in any group activity, however we can’t guarantee that something you share with a group would be kept private.
