The Turning Point / ELC Project

The ELC Angels Team spent an exorbitant amount of time and effort researching, programming, and preparing information in their presentation to Turning Point. The presentation was delivered energetically and in a self-assured and knowledgeable way that we could fully grasp and will definitely use. We left the final presentation with an awesome new website knowing that the Team felt as proud of their efforts as we did. It was an honor to work with them.

"The ELC team went above and beyond my expectations. Not only were they instrumental in producing a website that was clear and effective but they were powerful and extraordinary in what and how they presented. I am very proud to have participated."   ~ Jane Farmer, Executive Director Turning Point
