The foundation provided me with clothes to look presentable to interview. They also provided me with interview help and resume writing. This allowed me to become self sufficient. Im now working and taking care of my 2 children on my own. This company went over and beyond to help me and so many others. I can never say thank you enough.
I was put in touch with the Linferion Foundation, I was astounded by the compassion, the patience and the knowledge of the employees. I would definitely refer anyone who is in need of a reference, guidance or assistance.
When I was put in touch with the Linferion Foundation I was at an all time low in my life. I had lost my job, and due to a fall required surgery and was in a poor financial state. Barb came to my house and helped fill out the necessary paperwork and I was able to receive foodstamps along with helping me apply for HEAP and I received energy assistance. Barb has such warmth and genuine concern for the people she helps and puts her heart into it. Her professionalism shows through and she has a wealth of knowledge. She also told me that once a client always a client which is comforting to know. I would refer anyone in distress to the Linferion Foundation for help. I am forever grateful.
I contacted Linferion to acquire funding for a homeschool curriculum kit. I was quickly approved for the funding, the items were ordered by the organization and even delivered to my home by Barb. Without this funding, it would have been difficult for us to afford our curriculum set for this school year. Linferion has helped to make our school year a wonderful homeschool experience !! L.F.
