InterACT NY made an incredible impact on our employees, families, and the men and women we support. We are truly grateful to have been given the privilege to work with Francine, who is a kind, intelligent and creative woman that AHRC Suffolk was able to work with. She was able to quickly and artistically create a skit that truly embodied our approach and mission. Not only was InterACT NY's work inventive, but it truly grasped the attention of every person in the room.
Special Projects Coordinator
After participating in the extraordinary experience of an InterACT New York's program, it's hard to imagine having a session on interpersonal dynamics that isn't done by InterACT New York. Fran and her team are among the most experienced and talented social work professionals out there, and their insights have made us better at what we do.

The InterACT New York's program is exactly what I was looking for to enlighten our students about the complicated and controversial issues facing today's clergy. Your intelligence, sensitivity and warmth established a safe space for open dialogue. The vignettes that your actors brought to life helped us prepare our own personal scripts in a thoughtful and meaningful way.

InterACT New York's program at our Freshmen Orientation surpassed my expectations. Fran and her troupe of actors introduced our new students to the challenging issues that come up on our college campus including depression, peer pressure, relationship abuse, academic integrity and drug and alcohol use. InterACT New York's ability to stimulate dialogue and facilitate different intervention strategies makes it an invaluable asset for every college campus.
