Note From Our Executive Director

When a single mother is struggling to put food on the table, items many of us consider necessities, quickly become luxuries...items such as toothpaste, deodorant, and laundry detergent. Two weeks ago, our toiletry bins were bare. So, I sent out a call for help to our church partners. Would they be willing to help us restock? Within days of receiving the SOS, members from various churches began to drop off much needed items. What an amazing example of the community pulling together. 

Thank you for your continued support:
