Jessie’s Story


Going off to College was hard. The school work was hard, and leaving Guelph with all my friends, family and my boyfriend was even harder. The first month I was in Sudbury I struggled a lot. I was lucky that I had some family who live there to support me through everything. Without them I don’t know what I would have done.

During my year at college I was also happy to have the support of Family and Children’s Services, of my worker, and the financial support from the scholarships I received.  The staff and the donors through F&CS have given me opportunities that I would not have had if I wasn’t a crown ward, and I’m grateful for everything. I plan to work hard in the hopes that the support will continue.  Youth In Care
