Words of Encouragement from our Donors
“Family Matters is a second family for my daughters. You’ve helped me learn what leadership is and much more. You’ve also kept my daughters safe and helped them learn new things every day in the Teen Girls Program. I am glad to give this donation as a thank you for the support.”

“Family Matters is inspirational. It truly and deeply touches lives.”

“I’m really appreciative of how welcoming and nurturing ALL the staff are at Family Matters. Being a single mom raising a teenage boy is a juggling act and I couldn’t do it by myself. I’m glad Teen Boys and Community Tutoring exist to help challenge, support and guide my little family.”
– Anna Mangahas
“I taught for two years before coming to Northwestern for grad school. I saw my bright students struggling with school because they were not given the proper resources and I promised myself I would not let that happen again on my watch. This is for all the students who deserve the chance to be the change they wish to see in the world.”
– Ekta Shah
