Finding Freedom Through Friendship is so successful because it is run by dedicated, passionate, selfless individuals who genuinely care for Guatemalan women and children who need help. It is heartwarming to read the updates from FFF regarding those in the program: the food, shelter, education and emotional support provided really do change lives. It is easy to get discouraged as we face global crises and change- how can we make a difference? But FFF proves that making a difference doesn't have to be all-encompassing. It's making your small corner a better place.
I have watched as FFF has grown over the years and I must say that I'm impressed. Jody Greenlee is compassionate and committed, reminding us all through frequent emails and updates about the importance of assisting those impoverished women and children in Guatemala. Having volunteered with Jody through another organization, I have seen the need for change firsthand and know that FFF is actually DOING something to improve quality of life as opposed to simply raising awareness. I know this organization will go far and continue to change lives for the better.
Finding Freedom through Friendship is a non-profit organization that has helped many women in need in Guatemala. Their work towards building houses for many single mothers so that they and their children can have a roof over their head is heartwarming. The people involved in this organization put so much time and effort into helping others who don't have the resources to help themselves. Finding Freedom through Friendship is full of compassion!
The work that Finding Freedom Through Friendship does is truly amazing. They have just built 25 houses that house 150 Guatemalan women and their children who previously did not have housing.
I have been moved time and again by the intimate stories of the women and children this organization helps in rural Guatemala. The overhead costs are so minimal and all resources go directly towards the families in need. FFF is run by the most compassionate people who believe every life has great value.
More and more we all hear of the huge amount of donations to other charities that are siphoned off by leadership as "Administrative expenses". Not so with FFF, Inc.! The amount of money used for administration of funds is miniscule---an extremely high percentage of donations go directly to help the poorest of the poor.
Many kudos to Jody Greenlee, RN, and others in this organization for keeping expenses low, and help to the poor high. What a wonderful group of caring, giving people!
Finding Freedom Through Friendship is a good way to help those who can't help themselves(i.e., abandoned women and children in Guatemala). And your money goes a lot farther than most other charities, because our administrative staff, President, Vice President(me), and Chief Executive are unpaid volunteers! Talk about a bargain!

I have traveled to Guatemala twice with FFF, volunteer stateside, and continue to witness first-hand how dedicated and wonderful the volunteers are in their tireless efforts. Continuing to watch the organization grow and develop while always keeping in mind their purpose of helping single Guatemalan mothers and their families has been an amazing experience!
Hello, Im from Guatemala and it has been a pleasure to help this great organization, thanks alot for all of you who has been helping as well, there has been a big change into the indigenus area where the organization work, there are no words to say Thanks alot. alot.
Involved with this non-profit for many years as a donor and volunteer. It continues to impress with the efforts attempted and achieved working with mothers and their children in Guatemala. The focus is individual with the clients and follows alongside their progress and difficulties achieving it throughout the years. The director has the heart for helping!
I have had a wonderful experience with this charity after regular interactions over the years. I find the financial accountability reassuring as well as the hearts of the volunteers who run this wonderful organization!
Finding Freedom through Friendship is a wonderful organization that provides a crucial safety net for single mother's and children. The homes help with stability while the food provides important nutrients for brain development. This organization is impacting children long term to help them think and grow. In a country where most people are barely making it, Finding Freedom through Friendship is giving people hope for the future. Priceless!
