We have a family in a motel that has 5 kids, 4 of them with special needs. She is coming out of a pretty bad situation and could really use our help. Her family currently needs clothes. We would like to take them over this weekend so we would really appreciate your help.
We are the featured non profit at Inspirus credit union. The marketing dept. designed a wall to showcase our programs and highlight the plight of our local homeless families. Inspirus is also collecting food for our snack program. The bin is in the lobby, stop by and say Hi to Stephanie in the reception area.
I was just looking at our January numbers. We have placed 12 families in motels so far this year (can you imagine sleeping outside in this weather) helped 3 families pay their rent so that they did not loose their housing, packed 40 rubbermaid bins with food (that is close to 2,800 small bags of food,) Hosted a resource fair for local McKinney Vento students and made several deliveries to local schools. Thank you community... we are making a difference!
Valentine Smiles 2017. We have a working Board of Directors, many times this means lugging items back and forth to storage areas, or dropping off food, shopping for kids. or stocking motel rooms. Yesterday it meant we got to host our first annual McKinney Vento resource fair. Families received hair cuts, family pictures, school and dental supplies. We made so many new friends networking with local non profits who all have the common goal to help the children in our community. Thank you so much to our partners and community volunteers. I can not wait until next year!!
