I have been working with children and their families for the past 10 years. I first learned about Family Unification in late 2010. I have made referrals to Family Unification for mentors for some of the children I work with. Linda takes the time to meet the child and get to know them in order for a good match to take place. This shows how genuinely caring she is and that she has the child's best interest at heart. The relationships that foster children have are very important and they can use all the support they can get, especially in times when they are separated from their families. The relationships that these children form with mentors are much more meaningful than the ones they have with us "professionals," and they feel much more comfortable in being able to communicate with them.

The Great!

Family Unification Support Services has provided a range of support services for our clients. Their referral process is easy to navigate, they are flexible in their schedules and they are swift in providing services for families in need. We are quick to refer others to Family Unification Support Services because of how our clients have benefitted from their program.

Linda Thompson provided services, classes, and groups to the residents in our group homes. The residents are young girls ages 13-18 who have multiple barriers to success including addiction, behavior issues, and limited to no familial support. Anger, hurt, resentment is usual for these girls. Linda was able to break through their barriers and protective methods to help them get to the heart of issues quickly and without feeling threatened. Many of our girls requested one on one time with Linda as they felt she could relate and that she cared.

Linda was also extremely responsive to our agency when a need was identified. She responded to requests quickly, professionally, and with utmost in care. Her communication was always timely and spot-on. She understood the underlying need and on numerous occasions made valuable recommendations for changes in order to help us reach our goals even if it meant reducing her level of involvement. Her heart and goals are always with the client first and foremost.

Our clients were eager to have Linda come to our program for their groups and classes. They were not normally open to anyone on this level, much less to a therapist. Linda was extremely valuable and had a major role in our making progress with our clients.

I cannot honestly think of one thing I would recommend to change.

Linda has created something amazing when there’s a balance of flavors and spices and nothing is sticking out, nothing is too overpowering or too ‘blah.’ That applies to the way she founded her agency. Everything has to be beautifully harmonious. That applies to the services she provide to the community as well — it’s about harmony in terms of people working together. Linda is a blessing to Maricopa County.

Family Unification Support Services has been an invaluable part of our support services for clients. In an era of waiting lists and increased eligibility requirements, Family Unification Support Services has been a front runner in providing quality services in a timely manner to families who are in dire need. Their approach is both flexible and compassionate, recognizing the unique dynamics and needs within each family. They have been a saving grace for many of the families within our program.
