Imagine yourself rushing into a strange building, children in tow. You are scared, hurt, and have no place to rest or find safety. Then, instead of walking into a gray, gloomy building, you open the door of the FJC to find a calm, reassuring voice, and a safe place to sit and rest. Someone offers you refreshments, and a volunteer offers to show your children the playroom.
All of a sudden, getting help seems a little less frightening, and there is a glimpse of something that you did not believe you would ever find again . . . HOPE.
