President Jimmy Carter - "I wholeheartedly endorse the [Listen] program of the Home Health Education Services, and I hope you will lend whatever assistance you can to help them in their fight against drug abuse."
First Lady, Nancy Reagan - "My congratulations and heartfelt thanks to each one involved in Listen. I want to encourage you to keep up your good work."
First Lady, Barbara Bush - "Education is the key to so many social problems. Your publications can contribute in a significant way toward this goal of educated youth."
Robert Anastas (Founder), SADD (Students Against Drunk Driving) - "I strongly recommend Listen for both high schools and middle school students."
Evan Bayh, Senator of Indiana (Former Governor) - "The Listen materials supplied to my staff have been reviewed, and I can wholeheartedly endorse their use as a resource in the schools. Particularly impressive is the Listen emphasis on teaching young people to avoid smoking and drug abuse, including the abuse of alcohol. Equally as significant was the emphasis on healthful living and on straight thinking."
John H. Logue, Mayor of Grand Rapids, Michigan - "I would like to commend your excellent program, Listen - Community Crusade Against Drugs.... As Mayor of the City of Grand Rapids, I wish to lend my wholehearted support for the Listen program and extend my best wishes for your continued success."
Gary Locke, governor of Washington - "As governor of the state of Washington, I am pleased to have this opportunity to encourage young people to learn about the harmful effect of tobacco, alcohol, and illegal drugs through the efforts of "Listen Crusade Against Drugs" . . . I believe that education is our first line of defense in preventing addiction."
Katie, eighth grade student - "The stories in the magazine make me think of what would happen to me if I would try drugs and/or alcohol. That keeps me away from thinking about them. It is sometimes hard because the people around me smoke or drink, but I try to stay focused and I hope I stay on the same path that I am on right now. So thank you Listen for helping me through those times that I did not know what to do."
Ryan, New Hampton, Iowa - "Just a few years ago, while I was in high school, drugs were a major part of my life; possibly the only part. I came across your magazine in the counselor's office my sophomore year and I stopped to read it . . . (I've been drug and alcohol free for three years)."
Joanne Nester, correctional facility chaplain, Danville Virginia - "I recently received a copy of your magazine and it is exactly what the juveniles need . . .I wanted to know if you could possibly donate some copies."
Wanda Willis, city prevention coordinator, Gallipolis, Ohio - "I started out with two sixth grade classrooms four years ago. The two teachers liked it so much that I expanded to all the fifth grades. One hundred percent of the teachers involved wanted it for the next year. The students immproved attitudes by as much as 36 percent."
Principal, Holland Christian High School (Michigan) - We appreciate Listen very much and distribute it to all of our freshman health classes every month. Our teachers refer to articles in it...assigning articles from it. I want to thank the people who support this program financially for your continued help...I can see why national and state accrediting agencies use your work as the standard for all others.
Assistant Principal, New Oxford Middle School (Pennsylvania) - Thank you so much for sponsoring Listen as we continue our battle against drugs. The magazines are extremely well written and provide a meaningful and positive approach to our young people. Our four Health teachers use them often. The students do reports about drugs and role-play many situations that will hopefully assist them in their future decision making.
