My name is Tamara Davis. Today I am a Fayette Cares executive board member but I was once a client.
I had no home, no job, and nowhere to turn. My son’s father had abandoned us. When a friend told me about Fayette Cares, my pride said “I’m not going to some dirty shelter.” But I had a 2-year old son and we were at a dead end.
Not only was I wrong about the shelter but Fayette Cares helped me see the road ahead so I could get back on my feet. They helped me rise above the abuse that haunted me; the trauma of nearly being murdered by a man who once said he loved me. If it had not been for Fayette Cares I honestly don’t know where I would be today.
For more than three decades Fayette Cares has changed thousands of lives, including mine. This has inspired me to get involved and it’s why I love being of service. I thank God for Fayette Cares and I’m sure I speak for every client ever helped when I say, we all appreciate your efforts and THANK YOU for supporting the mission. Your time, money, and commitment to this great organization has an amazing impact.
May you never lose sight of how your contributions help others or how they might even help you.
Tamara “Tammy” Davis
Fayette Cares Executive Board Member
