Thank you for all that you have provided for us. It has truly been a blessing for us. We feel that this program is a great blessing for many families. We are just appreciative that you helped us in our time of need.
I will be forever grateful that I came into this program, and that I was able to meet and have met great people that I consider my extended family. Because of the FPE program and the people that are in the program with me, I have been able to crawl out of the dark hole and face the world.
We were the last family to leave our (shelter) group, but FPE staff helped me stay encouraged and stabilized. My wings have unfolded, my source of strength is rejuvenated, all because I can now let go because the waters have calmed. I appreciate you FPE family!
