I serve Families Moving Forward because I believe every human being has a right to quality, affordable, safe housing from which they can build better communities.
— Sherri Lawson Clark
I have been a single parent trying to raise children while holding down a job and Keeping things together. I know how hard that is and I want to help others. I know if not for the support of my parents, my children and I could have easily been homeless.
