As a board member, I had the privilege of cooking dinner for and having dinner with the residents of Banyan House just before Christmas. The hallway, dining area and TV room were decorated by the residents and staff. It looked very festive. The mother and children I sat and talked with sounded appreciative and positive about the help they were receiving from FESCO. They were looking forward to the holiday party they'd be attending the next evening at one of the churches that has been a big supporter of FESCO.
Before I left, I was shown bags full of hand-made quilts that a local quilting group donated for their annual contribution to help make the holidays warm and cozy.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
knowing how FESCO has positively worked to end homelessness for so many families.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
pay staff for all the time and effort they put in to serve the residents. Less time would be spent of fundraising and appealing for funds and more time and effort could be spent on serving the homeless by providing needed counseling, food and housing.
How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
About every month

Board Member & A women's organization I belong to has supported FESCO for years. When I was asked to be on the board, I was happy to expand my service to this fine organization.
