“My Story”: Louise Watson
More than 5,700 girls and young women have come to live at FCS since I first came on staff at FCS. Each one of those young women, like the thousands of FCS residents before them, has had her own story, her own needs, and her own plan for her future and the future of her baby. Over the years, I have seen first-hand how FCS residents are cared for, and the outstanding programs and services that are available to each one of them. I have come to understand why former residents tell us the time they spent at FCS was one of the most important periods of their lives – a time of positive changes that often opened new and wonderful futures for themselves and their children.
The very same can be said for me: Being a part of this agency’s amazing staff and volunteers as together we seek to achieve the mission and vision set before us has been a very important part of my own life and has brought positive changes and a brighter future to me.
I would like to thank each and every FCS client whose path crossed mine over these past years. You have shown me what personal strength in times of adversity and difficult life circumstances really means. You have shared your smiles, your tears, your struggles and your achievements with me, and I am truly humbled and grateful to you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
