I first learned of HMHI through our local Chamber when asked to serve on the development board. The services provided by this organization make a tremendous impact on our community. Meeting the participants and hearing their success stories is heart warming. One participant's experience that stands out is going from homeless, to getting a college degree, full-time employment and coming back to HMHI to serve on the development board. The only thing that would make the program better is unlimited resources for funding so that even more lives can enjoy a "fresh start".

Having been involved with the Annual FRESH START BENEFIT SALE for Humility of Mary Housing, Inc. for many years I know if I were a single-parent who, for whatever reason, became homeless I would feel blessed to be accepted into this Program which provides Supportive, Transitional and Permanent Housing that takes people from Homelessness to Self-sufficiency. HMHI is celebrating its 20th year of service which has brought many wonderful success stories from former participants and their now grown children. These stories reflect all the love, caring and nurturing that makes this Program work. Over 600 families have applied for housing in the past year yet there are only 49 homes available. Funding is desperately need to expand this much-needed Program.

The food pantry and clothing closet are open from 8-4:30, and service coordinators will sometimes stay late as needed, trying to accommodate those that have jobs but are still struggling to make ends meet. They don't stand over you the whole time your shopping. Plus, they listen to what the clients need and try to keep those things on hand as much as possible, including non-food items like tp and diapers.

Their emphasis on empowerment and self-determination.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Expand to serve more families. I believe they have around 600 apps a year and can only hold 47 families at a time.

Ways to make it better...

More funding we could use for specific items in high demand like diapers.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

We are very fortunate to have Humility of Mary Housing in our community. HMHI provides much needed transitional housing services to single parents and does so with a unique blend of compassion and effiency. They provide food clothing and shelter for parents and children in dire need. Once immediate needs have been met, HMHI then works with the participants to help them get the skills and education that they need to help them become healthy, happy, productive citizens.

What a wonderful organization! Humility of Mary Housing, Inc. helps, supports, and encourages growth of its participants. It serves as the transition to a better life for single parents and their children. HMHI serves a need and with greater funding could help an even longer list of people in need of such support, encouragement, and growth!
