JF&CS helped us understand that while being a mom is never easy, being a teenager and providing for your kid(s) during COVID-19 is even more stressful for these clients. We learned that we could purchase backpacks and fill them with all kinds of fun stuff for the three-year-olds who would be graduating from the Healthy Families program. Although this project was meant to be work, it was so satisfying for the both of us to know that we were helping other people, other families.
