Participant Quotes

I want to thank the whole EFAA staff for your assistance in getting my daughter and I a place to call home. Michelle, Sandy and Cece went above and beyond to make it all possible. I can now pay for my rent on my own and have extra money left over for living expenses. I am now off public assistance and paying for everything on my own. It’s such an empowering feeling after you have hit nothing but dead ends for the past two years! None of this would have been possible with out the help from EFAA. EFAA allowed me to gain financial freedom without needing public assistance anymore. I am forever grateful! Thank you from the bottom of my heart EFAA for helping my daughter and I!

After being a long-time donor to EFAA, I found myself in a position of needing assistance myself. Just knowing that EFAA is there gives me a great sense of relief. Without you, I would have had no safety net. And I am not alone. I meet people all the time whose lives have been saved by EFAA, just like me and my family’s.

Because of EFAA’s food bank, I was able to spend my budget on things that would propel us forward, instead of just barely surviving. I’m now able to go back to school.

EFAA is a big part of why I am doing as well as I am today and the reason I am on a track toward success. Soon, I hope to be off all assistance and be able to donate regularly to EFAA.

Because of EFAA we are able to save to buy a trailer, go back to school to get better jobs, and have a place for us all to call home… as a family.

EFAA is the difference between eating and not eating.

When we found out about EFAA we were so thankful. We are making the most of our time in EFAA housing by working and saving as much as possible.
