  A few words from our clients....
 " Before the FAITH program I was always wondering where I was going to lay me and my sons head next, will I have enough money for diapers? What will my future be?.........When I leave the FAITH program I see myself and my son having our own place...I see us happy and successful....I know I will be able to get through anything that comes my way"  RF  (October,  2013) probation essay for  FAITH(FAMILIES IN TRANSITIONAL HOUSING)PROGRAM
"This program has been helping me and my family tremendously by providing us with a stable home, safe place to be, also with childcare assistance and the food vouchers.  My children are much happier and comfortable.  It has also helped me to be financially stable and organized."  Written by M. B. on April 21, 2013 in her personal narrative after 3 months in the FAITH program. 

   " I have $8.62 for food this week." L.C. is a single woman in her mid-forties and her house was in foreclosure.  She received a food box from The Salvation Army Food Pantry.  In addition to canned and boxed goods, she also received lettuce, tomatoes, orange juice, English muffins, bread, a pound cake, bacon, turkey and other items.  Her favorite item, however, was the fresh broccoli.  "Do you know how long it has been since I had fresh broccoli?"
