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!

If you want to see real, positive change in someone's life, visit freedomthroughfriendship.blogspot.com to see it!

It's a pleasure and an honor to serve the underprivileged in Guatemala. All the work that goes into it comes back as a hundredfold blessings.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Watching the women gain leakproof housing.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find a way to increase funding!

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!

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!

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!

In the fall of 2014, I had the opportunity to travel down to Guatemala with Finding Freedom Through Friendship Inc. There I met some of the most kind and generous people I have ever met. These people really have dedicated their lives to serving others. They are on the ground, in the homes of every family they help, learning about who they are and what they've been through. With better understanding, they were able to make the best decisions about how to help most effectively. It was a privilege to serve alongside such caring individuals who are so passionate about improving the lives of the less-fortunate.
