SOWF gave me the opportunity that my dad would have wanted me to have.

SOWF provided me with the tools to be successful, both in school and in life. They gave me the opportunity to intern with them, which was a learning experience that helped me in many ways. They are an organization that I trust and believe in wholeheartedly. I believe the staff and volunteers of SOWF truly care about each child, and they make it their mission to help them in any way they can.

SOWF has been there since day one of my associate degree.

They have always made sure I got what I needed for my living expenses as well as my semester expenses. They not only have given me financial stability when I needed it the most, but also moral and emotional support. If it wasn’t for SOWF I wouldn’t be the professional teacher that I am today. For every success that I made and continue to make in my life, SOWF will be there at the top of the list for all of the thanks and recognition that they deserve for helping me carve my future.

SOWF provided me with the opportunity to be more engaged

in my studies rather than worrying about jobs and extracurricular work to pay for schooling. In addition, I was able to invest my time in leadership positions which have taught me so much as a person.
