Mission

Our Goal is to help anyone raising a family that has had a major catastrophic event. We feel there is a societal gap for heads of households that; fall ill unexpectedly, have to suddenly deal with an ailing parent or child, is left by a partner suddenly and is raising children. There are many circumstances that we will get involved and help.We allow our beneficiaries to choose the service that would most help them in their time of need. Each may choose from one of four options: food service, laundry service, childcare and housekeeping (each valued at $500).

Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

We exist to help women, particularly moms, who have been hit with a crisis and in need of assistance to overcome that crisis. A societal gap exists for those who, because of their "usual" financial status, don't quality for government services but may hit a roadblock and are in dire need of assistance. Moms with a child who is very sick, or mom who is very sick and alone to take care of her children or a mom who is in an unsafe situation and needs help getting back on her feet are typical problems that we address. We see them needing assistance in care not money in all situations so we provide child care, housekeeping, laundry or meal services to get them over their crisis situation easier.
