“If I could talk to the donors who contributed to the Families of Freedom Fund, I would tell them that whatever they gave in any amount or in any form will never be forgotten. It will always be appreciated because it really did help this family."
-- Eileen, who used her Families of Freedom scholarship to attend law school after her husband passed away; three of their six children, to date, have also received Families of Freedom help.
