HPF’s Impact on Humanity

“Rhett and the humanity preservation has helped me through very tough times. He never gave up on me and always pushed me when I didn’t have the strength to push myself but with his help I know I can conquer anything I put my mind to I know I can call him for any reason and never feel judged or insecure when talking to him about my problems I have. I would have never been able to be where I am at today without his knowledge and experience”

Ryan Schock

“I want to express my gratitude to the Humanity Preservation Foundation for their guidance in directing me to resources for one of my coworkers dealing with a domestic violence. It is reassuring to know that this wonderful organization exists to give direction and hope to those in need.”

CG

“5 1/2 years ago Rhett Hackett became a part of my family. My son was a victim of sexual abuse and I contacted Rhett and his team for advice and guidance. What Rhett has done for my family and my son can never be repaid. He has been by our side for sentencing through, tears, through my son not wanting to live anymore and he has helped my son persevere. Rhett’s foundation is the most important thing to any family of any child who has been abused in anyway. Rhett gave me my son back.”
