The following nomination was written by a citizen on probation:

“Zach has worked with me along with other high risk clients in the ISP program since it started sometime last year. I have been on ISP (Intensive Supervision Probation) for over a year now, and am at the very end as I am graduating in a month or so. Zach has gone VERY far beyond what is asked of him to make sure that I was a success and he does this with all of his clients. We have overcome things together that I never thought possible. When I met Zach, I was very lost in life and constantly in new trouble, in and out of jail. I had a SERIOUS heroin habit among other issues. Because of Zach, I am now over a year clean, and have changed my behaviors around. I now hold a good job, go to treatment only a few hours a week and my son has a father again.

Zach has gone so far beyond what he needed to do, and invested so much extra time into me, I could never repay him. He also went beyond the norm by far because he didn’t treat me like a drug addict, or a criminal. He treated me like an equal, and after spending time together we developed a friendship, he truly cares about me and what happens to me, and I know he wants me to make it just as much as I want to make it. When times were hard, and there were very hard times, he helped me find motivation to get up and keep pushing. When I needed someone to lean on, he was always there and still is to this day. He will take a phone call no matter what day or time, to be there for me. He has helped me through the biggest challenge in my life, and never once given up on me, even if I sometimes gave up on myself.”
