A few years ago I found myself with no place to live for me and my son. I had no job. I was at the lowest point in my life.  I was provided with a list of shelters in Chester County, and began calling each one.  A day later I received a call back from the Friends Association to come in for an intake appointment.

Friends Association is not just a shelter. It was a stepping stone for me and my family and taught me how I could be the best mother to my son. They helped me when I had nothing and changed my life by giving me the tools and confidence to make it on my own.
