As you can see, it is not just FFR’s individual services that make it so vital to Northern Greenville County; it is the close proximity of all of these services to an under-served population that makes us irreplaceable in the region. This is especially true considering we serve a population that faces a lack of transportation as a huge barrier to receiving services. These individuals need help and would go without if FFR did not exist.
