“Life skills has changed me, not only the way I think daily, and budget, but it has changed me as a young adult. The endless support and life lessons which I received while in this program are nothing short of a blessing.” Thank you IFS, Nyaisha Green


“Being a young man in a program with a majority of women has been quiet the challenge, however I decided to commit.My name is Jonathan Crespo and I have been in life skills since November 2015. While in life skills, I was able to obtain a job and purchase nice items for myself. I really enjoyed coming to life skills.”
With Sincere Gratitude, Jonathan Crespo


“When I first attended life skills, I was hesitant about the program and had thoughts about not attending. However I went and now I’m happy that I did. I’ve learned so much from this class, you wouldn’t even believe it. Now I see a brighter future for myself and my son.” Thanks for Believing in Me, Nephatete McCord


“I was the one you would call difficult, someone you wouldn’t want to work with. IFS opened their doors to me on July 2015, and I’m grateful for their,” No Eject, No Reject” policy. Today I stand, still a work in progress, but now headed in the right direction. Thank you for the life skills, and for having patience with me when I didn’t have patience for myself. I would like to thank Ms. Watkins for the continuous encouragement and Mr. Kornegay for the talks, even when you thought I wasn’t listening.” With Much Appreciation, Asim Harvin


“I’m happy that I am finally graduating. I’d like to thank those who believed in me and had faith in me. I’ve had very hard obstacles to overcome, but I am glad that I am celebrating this moment.”T.D.


“This journey has been a struggle for me. I didn’t start off this year well, but not everyone is perfect. We all make mistakes along the way. I try my best to be motivated and positive. I have even disappointed myself at times. But I know, I didn’t come this far to give up and I didn’t, I made it….”W.W.


“This year has been a journey for me but I am glad that I made it this far, and I just want to thank IHS for giving me an opportunity for a better future” L. L.
