“Courage does not always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, I will try again tomorrow. I tell myself this every day. I am thankful that I found the Family Services Center when I did. You have helped my family so much over the last year and-a-half. I really don’t know where I would be without you all. Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts!” – Kitty Holt
