Our mission is to empower women and teens to lift themselves out of poverty and into a financially secure future.
Thanksgiving Dinner Baskets
In 2011, we began a holiday dinner basket program to better serve the families that we sponsor. Each Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas we provide everything needed for each family to prepare a complete meal. We are very happy to say that we have just finished collecting donated items for our 6th annual Christmas Dinner baskets!
In 2014, we implemented a Summer Lunch Program in one of our local RV parks, and it has been a great success! In 4 seasons, we have served over 950 lunches to kids in need! This program is aimed at kids 18 and younger, and was designed to fill the gap created by the loss of free or reduced-priced school lunches.
Currently, we are working on a new program aimed to get teens interested in a career in the trades! Working in construction is a great path to a secure financial future both for men and women alike. Our goal is to introduce these kids to a career path that they haven't explored yet. Our goal is to demonstrate a proven path to lift themselves out of poverty. Our services include: introduction to the trades, transportation to local apprenticeships to pick up applications, help filling out applications and getting all required documents turned in, as well as hands-on experience gained through volunteer work with Habitat with Humanity!
