What Others Are Saying About Richard Ramos
At the age of 11 I got involved with the juvenile criminal justice system. Richard Ramos was one of the few people in my life that was supportive and unconditional. He would come to my house any time my mother was having difficulty with me. He would hunt me down on the streets to get me to school or back home. With the support of Mr. Ramos I was able to transition from offender to a young woman ready to take on the world. I received my Bachelors Degree in Criminal Justice from Long Beach State University and Masters in Social Work from the University of Southern California. I now work as a Therapist/Social Worker with Orange County’s most vulnerable youth and families. I am truly grateful for all your work Mr. Ramos on a personal and professional level. I know your words will touch the lives of youngsters just like they once touched me.
– Gabriela Hernandez, MSW, Clinical Social Worker, Orange County Mental Health
