WHAT THE YOUTH WE SERVE ARE SAYING

Receiving my Back-to-School Package was a very special feeling, like someone really cared about me, and my educational goals. The program gives me the motivation to strive towards greater academic achievement!

Tiffany

Back-To-School Package Recipient

As far as my academics, you play a big role. I know that I'm not alone because if there's anything you can do, even if it's not related to school -- like housing or personal issues -- I know that NYFC will help me. I just want to say thank you because before you came into my life, I didn't know how I was going to afford college and buy my books.

I am incredibly grateful to NYFC for restoring my hope and putting me on a path to success. I'm looking forward to graduating next semester!
