Martin Luther King said, "Everybody can be great. Because anybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve...You don't have to know the second theory of thermodynamics in physics to serve. You only need a head full of grace. A soul generated by love."

Some people help by making donations of food; others money for food and petrol vouchers; others donate money to help run the organisation; others drive people to medical appointments; others do odd jobs around the office; others help people deal with their debts; others walk with people needing a bit of moral support; others donate their experience and expertise; others help answering the phones; others do research.

Stevie Wonder reckoned that he learned that, "...giving your services for free gives you a good return on your investment, not just financially, but morally. It supplements your personal integrity."

Franklin Family Support Services is funded through a number of government contracts to provide services and the rest of our funding is made up from grants, donations and fees for services provided.

You can help by volunteering.
