We are a family here at FGSS, where everyone is equally motivated by the smallest result or progress we can make in someone’s life. “Enhancing lives for the better” is personal, this is why FGSS works hard to provide an active Skill Building support service. Enabling someone or encouraging someone to never give up their “HOPE” and to always “TRY” to improve their way of life, is rewarding to each of us here.

Mr. and Mrs. Hope's name is true to the emotional and personal needs of individuals that can’t always speak or manage everyday decisions. They started this agency to assist others that are not always able to help themselves. Mrs. Hope thoughts are simple: "It is not always the fault of the many individuals that are unfortunate to be diagnosed with a disadvantage of not making clear decisions or able to handle the difficulties of everyday life; Whether it is a form of depression, bipolar, schizophrenia or any other disability, when someone is able to assist, show compassion, and give that person a since of “HOPE” the task is halfway complete." Mr. and Mrs. Hope stay involved, share concerns, suggest encouragement, as well as collaborate with staff to improve the needs of its members.
