Together We Can Make a Difference

The Impact of Your Gift: From Homelessness to Self-Sufficiency

Mom and Baby COMPRESSED for WEB Jillian was a 19-year-old single mother who was desperate and had lost all hope for the future when she first came to us for help. She and her one-year-old daughter Emily had been staying in a local motel while Jillian worked two part-time waitressing jobs. “I was at the lowest point of my life and had no where to turn,” she says. Jillian had left her parents’ house to protect herself and her daughter from abuse. Eventually, she entered our Transitional Housing Program where she started to work toward her dream of a job in the dental field while having a secure and safe place to call home. Today, Jillian is an oral surgery assistant and will soon graduate from our program. “Words cannot describe what this program has given us,” she says. Success stories like Jllian’s would not be possible without caring people like you who support our programs.  Please consider a gift today to help young single mothers and others who need extra help as they work to overcome crisis in their lives. Together, we can change lives.

Help Us to Transform Lives

Last year, more than 2,500 individuals came to us for assistance, seeking to get back on a path to self-sufficiency. Your investment in their lives makes a big difference to each one of them and to the strength of our whole community.

There are many ways to give or to get involved.  You can give online, make a monthly pledge or consider Planned Giving. We also gratefully accept volunteer help or donations of new and gently used items.  With your help, we are bringing about permanent positive changes for people in our community.

We invite you to listen to a former client talk about how her life was changed by our program in this short video. You can also learn more about the impact of your support on our client success page.
