Dr. Stephen R. Covey – March 2006

“I have known of the life-changing work of the ANASAZI Foundation and its founders, Ezekiel Sanchez and Larry Olsen, for many years. Through their programs thousands of families have been blessed. ANASAZI uses the great outdoors, caring staff, and the principles I believe in to facilitate a change of heart.

“I recently wrote The 8th Habit: From Effectiveness to Greatness about the importance of finding your voice and inspiring others to find theirs. Ezekiel and Larry not only espouse this principle, they live it in all they do at ANASAZI Foundation. Finding one’s voice is the central element of the ANASAZI Way–as participants find their self-worth and potential to make a difference in their own lives, families and communities.

“For those seeking help for a struggling son or daughter or to enrich a marriage and family, ANASAZI is a marvelous place for a new beginning.”

Barbara Bush – November 1996

“All of you who are associated with ANASAZI, starting with Larry Olsen and Ezekiel Sanchez who first had the vision to bring troubled children to your great outdoors, to those here tonight who so generously support the program, and especially to those parents and program graduates who are here to give back some of what they have been given; all of you deserve enormous congratulations and our deep appreciation for everything you have accomplished. George calls it being a ‘point of light.’ In your case I think a beacon might be more accurate since you are truly lighting the way for people lost in the dark.”

Steve Young – Forever Young Foundation

“With remarkable results, the caring staff at ANASAZI have helped turn the hearts of thousands of youth back to their families. In our work at Forever Young, we frequently hear from parents who are desperately seeking help for a child experiencing drug problems, school failure, depression, and even thoughts of suicide. The program we have chosen to serve this need is ANASAZI Foundation.

At Forever Young Foundation, we support ANASAZI by helping raise funds for scholarships. Scholarships make it possible for families with little or no financial resources to participate.”


Wynonna Judd

“ANASAZI has made such a big difference in our family healing process. The people there support our entire family system and have given us all a lot of hope. I would recommend that every single parent and child in America experience the peace that ANASAZI offers. My experience there has changed the way I parent.”
