Every parent knows that getting the kids to school can be a challenge even on a good morning. However, for Janice, it’s been a true struggle.
Janice is a single mother with three children. Illness has left her unable to work and the monthly disability check doesn’t always cover her expenses. Generally she comes to St. Francis House for food and clothes to help make that check go further, but this month it still didn’t stretch quite far enough. Out of cash, she called St. Francis House for a gas voucher so she could get her children to school. “School is important and if they’re not there, how can they learn?” St. Francis House was there to help Janice fill her tank…and get her children to school.
