Review for Friends Association for Care & Protection of Children, West Chester, PA, USA
Living in one of the richest counties in Pennsylvania, the existence of so many families in need was a rude awakening to someone living here for many years. I have volunteered with Friends Association for over ten years and am still awed by the continuing dedication & work ethic of the staff to help the families who are homeless or in danger of becoming homeless. I have met women where circumstances , beyond their control, have changed their lives & those of their children in a moment - that could be me or anyone. The impact to eumployment , schooling , social services & self esteem that Friends takes on with their mission is inspiring. I have seen the success storie, the appreciation of their clients for the opportunities given and the hope for a better future. This is what motivates volunteers like myself to help Friends make a difference for those disadvantaged families living in our midst. .
