“Thank you so much for the generosity you’ve given me with rental assistance and getting the help I needed from other programs in the area. Your kindness means the world to me. I feel truly blessed to have wonderful people like you touch my life. Thank you with all my heart.”
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping our family with the security deposit so that we could rent an apartment after losing our house. We are grateful for your generosity and for expediting our request. Each volunteer I spoke with was warm and gracious and treated me with respect. That means so much in a difficult time. We have an opportunity for a fresh start and we thank you for helping make that come true. Our hope is to get to a place where we can help others in need the way Naperville CARES helped us!”
