You are helping Alejandra and her family lead a life of health and happiness

Bon Secours Family Focus offers support, education, and access to community resources to help families thrive. For Alejandra Cesar and her family, it helped them feel less isolated during a time when everyone was feeling alone.

“Family Focus has been a blessing to my family,” she said. “They helped my husband, my three children and me all feel more confident about being part of this wonderful community.”

Thanks to your generous support, and a funder in the community, Bon Secours Family Focus provides programs covering the entire developmental spectrum of children, including a variety of classes designed to help people become better parents. One of those programs, English as a Second Language, was especially beneficial to the Cesar family.


“To be honest, the opportunity to learn English has created so many more opportunities for us. One of those opportunities was for me to finally become a U.S. citizen, and I am now lucky to be one.”


Along with her citizenship, Alejandra has learned so much about health and wellness through programs like Passport to Health, which has dramatically improved her family’s outlook on healthy eating and overall well-being. She is eternally grateful donor-funded programming like this is possible.

“We have learned there are lots of different ways to have a healthy life, and we are blessed to be a part of these wonderful programs,” she said.

“I am so thankful to everyone who help make these programs available, because Family Focus motivates people to take advantage of the big opportunities this country gives.”
