Family Unification Support Services is an organization which helps children and their familes come together. It takes a special person to use the talents that God has given them to help the families in need. I feel that person is Linda Thompson.She is loving, caring, and compasionate. She helps put her clients at ease when they come in for classes or couseling sessions. I have observed parenting classes that have been given to help the parents learn how to work with their children. We need more organizations like Family Unification Support Services and people like Linda to help children and their families. Go to Family Unification Support Services and check out the website to see all of the services they provide.
