Resident & Staff Testimonials
North Fork gave me a positive outlook on my life when I had nothing left to look forward to. They made me feel like a family and made sure I was taken care of. I like that the staff and the housing is suitable to help change a person’s life when they are at a bad part in life. North Fork is the best place to go to change your life from bad to good.
North Fork has really helped me a lot because they taught me to leave my past in the past and to focus on my future. Also what I have learned is that you have to live day by day. The staff have made North Fork a family environment and they will help you with whatever you need to make your day better.
North Fork Educational Center is truly like a family. It has been a wonderful experience to watch our residents grow and heal from the trauma they have experienced. They have overcome hardships and learned through therapy and mentorship how to trust and become successful, happy individuals.
