Donor Testimonials

"I have enthusiastically supported Thames River Community Service for many years because I know it is well run and mothers who have lived here with their children have learned important skills for maintaining a stable home for their family.  I teach special education and saw a student I worked with in 1st grade who had already been in 5 different schools.           She moved into the Family Program with her mother and 2 sisters and ended up not needing special education as she learned to read, thanks to the stability her family finally achieved. I also appreciate the collaborative spirit with other social service agencies as it makes for a seamless support community for those who experience homelessness for whatever reason. It might not appear to be a glamorous cause but it is life altering." D.E.
