Here is an email we received today as iI write this:

I cannot express how gratefull I am for your help.I thought my life was hopeless.I was just so close to giving up.It was a nightmare of hell.I DON'T know if you can realize what an impact you and your company have on lives of people who are bullied and disrespected by the employees of collection agencies. It breaks my heart to think there are other seniors who hid behind the walls of their own home desperate, alone and fearfull.I spoke with a lady today 75 years old that had taken bankruptcy two years ago.She is on social security and paying over two hundred dollars a month with three hundred left to live on.I promise you I will tell everyone of HELPS.YOU ARE DOING FOR ME WHAT I THOUGHT WAS IMPOSSIABLE.I am also from a family who farmed and publicly worked.As a child I remember on fridays I would sit on the poarch with my hand in an almost empty box of dried cherrios watching for my father to come home.It was pay day and we would go to buy groceries.I can relate to you and your parents.I never sat out for my life to be this way,life just happens .Helps,is Loving thy neighbour as you would thy self.Thank YOU AND YOUR STAFF FOR YOUR HEARTS OF KINDNESS AND GIVING HOPE TO THE HOPELESS. SINCERLY, WANDA H.
