THE STORY:

Terry Goode wrote -

Family Service Of Champaign County wrote -

Family Service was the first human services agency in Champaign County, IL in 1911. We've certainly gone the distance!  After more than a century of adapting to changing community needs, our service recipients tell their own stories best:

 

" I would have no where to turn, no food, no medicines, no doctor without the [Family Service] volunteer drivers. I can’t put into words how grateful I am.”  


“I am almost blind now, so I would have a hard time without the meals.[Famiy Service Meals on Wheels] I can’t cook at all, so I would have to eat cold food as best I could.”  


“I am slowing down a little, as I am 80 years of age. My health is good, but I want to keep it that way.  I think volunteering keeps you younger.”   [Family Service Retired & Senior Volunteer Program]


“Please thank [our counselor] for helping my son deal with his depression. He is doing so much better!”   [Family Service Counseling]


We have hundreds of such stories...many have a familiar ring...like the beginning of stories in the news that end tragically because people were alone in their troubles.  


These stories have happy endings because as one woman thanking us related, "It's good not to feel alone when you need help."  


Every year we make a difference for thousands of people.  Today, we need your help to continue assisting them.  Your miles, your gifts...will transform many lives!
