“The feeling I got the first time I came here. How welcome I felt and how happy to have so much support at a time I was lost.”

“It is the place I live in a real family atmosphere when I was missing my own family. I learned how to raise a child and made relationships with other mothers.”

“Every time I feel distressed, alienated and miss my family, I go [to Family Place]. They give me love and attention and time.”

“I feel joy every time I enter the building. It means a lot to me, it is the place where I found support and encouragement and I learned the skills of life.”
