"It was a very good feeling to put a turkey dinner on my table. It was a good feeling that someone thought enough to care."
For Ruth, the thought of not celebrating a traditional Thanksgiving meal was difficult to face. She had recently lost her home, her financial problems were growing and she felt very distraught. Ruth reached out to a financial counselor at Aurora Family Service who provided assistance in a time of dire need. She also made sure Ruth received a Thanksgiving meal.
"I felt despondent, but that particular year it sure made me feel grateful. It made a great big difference in my life that I was able to provide a Thanksgiving meal to my family."
– Ruth, client of Aurora Family Service
