Linda’s Story

Meet Linda.

Just 18 years old, pregnant and homeless, Linda thought her only option was to drop out of school. But the people she met at Family Connections helped her find another way. She stayed in school, eventually got 2 jobs and found her own place to stay. She even made the Deans List at community college!

Linda says, “I realized that there are people who will help you.” She learned to get what she wanted in life by working hard to reach her goals.

“When you have a good job and you’re taking care of yourself and your child, that’s the best feeling ever.”

When you give to the Holiday Fund, you are part of the amazing work of Family Connections. Thank you for helping build a greater New Jersey!
