“Making the decision to start a new life and raise my daughter on my own wasn’t an easy one! I must let you know just how much JFS had restored some faith in me! SOMEONE THOUGHT OF ME AND MY DAUGHTER!! I want you to hear from me that I couldn’t be more THANKFUL!! You have relieved so much of my feeling overwhelmed with my situation from Covid-19 effects financially. I’m now overwhelmed with feeling thankful!”
