Sandra L. Brown Interview on Relationship Talk

      Real Knowledge. Real People. Recently, Sandra L. Brown was honored to be interviewed by “Ruth” at Relationship Talk, an interesting site featuring bloggers, articles, interviews and an interactive forum.

Dawn Schiller Continues to Spread the Word for Throwaway Teens

Schiller spoke at The Shaw House, a facility which is a shelter, education center and transitional housing for teens who have nowhere else to call home.  Expounding on her own story of a dysfunctional childhood which left her in an abusive relationship with a 32 year old man, addicted to drugs and alcohol, and trafficked on the streets of Las Angeles, Dawn continues to show that there is hope beyond what seems to be a bleak outcome. Dawn presented a 2 hour workshop at both The Shaw House and the Mountainview Correctional Facility, giving direction to teens and raising the awareness of the consequences of abuses and neglect in families across the country.  She gives an inside view of what it’s like to be a throwaway teen and how communities can unite to assist them through mentoring and programs. Schiller then …
