Family Stories

“The Family Shelter gave my daughter and me opportunities that other people take for granted. Having stability—a place to call home—brings a sense of security, safety and peace. I am grateful that she could experience the caring hearts and helping hands. I now have confidence in my abilities and I am able to build a firm foundation for my family’s future.
