So why join ACCI?

Shakilah: “In April of this year, I  had the opportunity to attend a training about how to start a court-mandated services business. I had been trying to get to this training for a while, I mean years because this is how long I have know that this what I wanted to do but it seemed as if I kept running into dead ends, locked doors, etc.
This guy provides us with a lot I had already because I spoke with the guy before on a zoom call, but at the end he throws this out there so calmly and randomly – “Or you can link with ACCI. This company already has classes done for you.” Now I’m wondering, Why you wouldn’t lead with this and why didn’t you go that route? I felt like that piece of information was just for me.
Now when I got home and begin to do my research of and I read Mr. Lloyd’s story, I’m sitting there with tears in my eyes because I relate to both him and with his mom, just the feelings…we are relatable. The passion that we both possess internally pertaining to our individual missions appeared to be in harmony at that moment.
After looking at a sample course, the clinician part of me loved everything about it, the structure of it and it was evidence-based. I was in therapeutic heaven! The opportunity could not have been presented at a better time as I am truly in a position where I am ready to give back in a meaningful way. ACCI is helping Truth Is Therapy & More do that while remaining true to my values and beliefs. So, all those years were well worth the wait!”
