Former schoolteacher. One night, not too

in his crib, grabbed her handbag and the
keys to the family car, and ran away from

Out of work, out of money, with nowhere

Family Service, a Federation partner agency.
To get through this first bitter winter, Sandi

family's basic needs: groceries, car expenses
and clothing. Beyond that, to get back on
her feet, she'll need job retraining and
family counseling. Sandi is not a "case
