“It gives me hope with the great support they give me when my son is sick with sickle cell disease symptoms in the hospital. They helped me get back on my feet when I lost my job and I had nobody to turn to for help, they were there for me and thanks to them I was able to pay my rent and my kids still have a home. I owe it all to the them." Melissa A., Sickle Cell Family (her son pictured below)
“The agency has provided my family with financial assistance and emotional assistance, and has been my second family over the last thirteen years.”Arielle D, Sickle Cell Client
