Testimonials

Mike Ward

"...it's hard to get a helping hand these days, which makes 3 hots a really great, and sometimes life saving program for all of us vets, I do greatly appreciate what they do and did for me."

Mark C

"This program gradually builds you up, and as long as you work the program, it'll work for you. I came out much better than when I went in and I'd recommend it to anyone."

Anthony H

"Being at 3 hots, gave me time to clear my head, relax and get the medical help that i required to be self sufficient...Thanks, you have inspired me to action."

M Tucker

"I'll always be thankful. I wish everyone could come come through Three Hots but I know there's not room for everyone..."
