Stefany was in therapy pre-pandemic for anxiety. At the onset of the pandemic, she lost her job as a housekeeper. As a single mom, she needed to be able to pay rent and feed her children. Her anxiety became paralyzing. Stefany was at a loss for words and started to cry with gratitude when she found out that JFS would continue to provide free weekly counseling, as well as provide rental assistance.
"I sincerely don't know what I would do without you."
– Stefany, JFS Client
