"If the El Paso START team as a whole took the Via Survey, I think their top three Strengths would be Perseverance, Teamwork, and Love of Learning. As the Project Manager, I watched how hard they worked and how the dedication of each member of the team to be a part of a greater whole was responsible for the group's success. I am thrilled at far they have come but the real excitement, for me, is in how far they will go. With plans to incorporate MFP and respite bed programs into a START-informed larger service, the large cross-cultural population, and the way their county accepts primary intervention through trainings, CETs, and linkages offer limitless opportunities and experiences for El Paso and for the National team. I want to thank every individual who was a member of El Paso START in the last 3 years and all who helped to support it. I am so proud."
