Janet is a full-time working mother, with four small kids. She became involved with Faith Restorations Inc. in January of 2016. She was looking for an organization that gives back to the community and this one fit the heart of everything she’d been looking for in a nonprofit. She wants her children to grow up knowing that there are more important things in life than self-gratification. Serving those in need, especially our active military and veterans, is something she’s passionate about. Those who have given so much of themselves every day deserve all the help we can offer. Reaching outside of our comfort zone and helping those that cannot always help themselves is a lesson that everyone needs to keep in mind. Through her work with Faith Restorations Inc., Janet is able to meet people and help to change lives.
