We were about to be homeless in just a couple of days, and I received a call from the man from our car lot asking if he could give our number to Petya, because he knew of our situation and how hard we were struggling on a daily basis! My daughter can't work due to caring for my grand child, her daughter that was born with multiple "Congenital Abnormalaties" and has need for constant care and frequent Doctors and Specialist's appointments. I am all they both have, so I do my best to take care of all 3 of us, but it is really hard at times, to just survive! Petya called "that day" and asked my daughter to come and meet her in person. She paid our rent out of her own pocket, because our situation couldn't wait for donations, or we would have been evicted for not having the rent! She really cares about the people she helps, and it shows! I always say "I do my best, and God will do the rest!" He sometimes does the rest with the help of his angels............. I believe she is one of his Angels, and he sent her to us! Thank you Petya for being there for us!

Petya Edwards is a guardian angel. She has a HEART so big and FULL of LOVE for helping people. When I was in need of help I was introduced to her foundation by a friend. No sooner than I gave her the information regarding my needs, they were instantly provided for. I will always be grateful to Petya and her foundation.

My experience with the Petya I. Edwards Foundation has been both as a client and participant. When I first met Petya I could tell that I was talking to someone who was not only dedicated, but who had invested much time and heart into her Foundation. The Petya I. Edwards Foundation doesn’t only provide financial aide, it also provides tools that are valuable to a person’s immediate and long-term recovery out of economic hardship. I am truly blessed personally and I look forward in being involved with the Petya I. Edwards Foundation for years to come.

The Petya I. Edwards Foundation is a great non-profit organization that provides life-changing services to those whose lives it touches. What makes this organization different is a proactive, educational aspect that not only supplies urgent financial help to those in need, but provides specialized programs that offer the opportunity to become once again financially independent. As a leader, Petya Edwards is both committed to this cause and dedicated to the task of making the most of the donations received by the Foundation.

I have the pleasure of working with Petya Edwards and her Foundation and have found that the mission supported is one that is not only highly noble, but also productive, serving members of the community in a very positive way. The Foundation is driven to meet goals and through the expert leadership of Ms. Edwards, works to get that job done. If you are interested in supporting the Foundation, feel confident that you are working with NPO professionals who know how to make the most of donations, while also meeting personal goals of those who they serve.

I've been involved with this organization from the very beginning of its existence, and now I am serving as a Board member. This organization is built around the idea of helping alleviate and minimize the stress for children whose families are going through hard times. Examples of this organization's activities include organizing holiday parties for children living in shelters, gathering financial contributions for families where a parent is affected by disease or unemployment, as well as organizing fundraisers to promote the organization's cause.

Since graduating from lawschool in 1989, I've been a corporate attorney or business person, but my heart has always been with children. As a result, for over 7 years, I volunteered as a leader with Yound Life, a ministry geared at helping teenagers, and I have continued to stay involved through the years. This Foundation is right up my alley, as it is focused on children AND it is focused on providing direct assistance to children in desperate need.
