Help Us Make Ward 7 Stronger.

Dear Friend of ERFSC:

Imagine a family situation where the father is absent, the mother is unemployed and the children are barely making it in school due to lack of attention and necessary resources. Now consider the stress and embarrassment of not having the "right clothes" to wear to school, a healthy lunch to edify the childrenís minds, and a single parent who is so busy trying to make ends meet, that she involuntarily neglects her children. Surely you can see how a family situation like this can negatively affect the motherís mental health and the childrenís self esteem and impact their ability to learn. Surely you can envision how this situation can get worse and result in children who fall into the juvenile system or worse!

This is the reality of many of the families in Ward 7. ERFSC has been working very hard to reduce those alarming statistics but we are far from the beautiful day when all families will be healthy and thriving. It is for these reasons and many others that we are contacting you. We need your help to secure better futures for the families we serve.

Please help ERFSC to allow our children access to vital resources which in turn will benefit them, their community and their future. Please help ERFSC to assist mothers to have continued access to resources which will help them to keep their heads above water. Please help us to continue to make a positive impact on the lives of the residents of Ward 7.

With your generous donation, we can open up many windows of opportunity and give our residents a life beyond their limited boundaries along with the tools, the hope and the desire to strive for empowerment. By making a donation, you will not only be contributing directly to the success of these families, but will also be playing an active role in the overall sustainability of ERFSC.

You may donate right here on our Web site or send your donation check to our office.

Thank you for your generous consideration.


Mae Best
Executive Director
