19 years ago I was a single mother with two small boys. I would have loved to have had a resource like Mom's Closet to help me. Women who are going to school, working, and raising children alone are pulled in so many different directions, sometimes they just need encouragement to keep going and realize their dreams of being able to support themselves and their family without assistance. Mom's Closet Resource Center, Inc. does just that. They are a help up to these women, not just a hand out. The director of the program Kim Jacobs, takes the time to get to know each of the women and her children that are in the program. She offers her friendship not just financial help. Sheila Day the president and COO is not just a figure head, she is at the Center daily and works along side Kim and all the other volunteers.
I am proud to be a weekly volunteer and a board member of Mom's Closet. We are continuing to grow and add more women and children to our program, that shows that women are looking to education as a way out of desperate situations, and that through hard work and dedication they can better the lives of their children. Mom's Closet has restored my faith in what can be achieved when people care about each other.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have seen firsthand women who thought they could not achieve their goals of going to school, working, and raising their children be lifted up and counseled through various obstacles with the help of MCRC.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

The only change I would make to this program would be getting the word out more of who we are and what we do. Being a small nonprofit it is difficult to get larger companies to recognize us and help us. We rely completely on donations and do not get any state or federal funding. I would not change that aspect, but I wish more people knew that we are here and ready to help single moms who are working and going to school.

What a blessing Mom's Closet has been to single mom's in our area. On the front of our brochure it says...Changing the future of Kentucky's kids one mom at a time....I have watched over the past seven to eight years the lives that have been changed due to the assistance these moms receive from the center. They are taught about accountability, but with love. They receive assistance where they run short each month, either by assisting with utilities, gasoline, or even just trips to the food pantry. When these mom's become a part of the Life Plan at MCRC, they become part of our family. We help with Thanksgiving, Christmas, back to school. Any of those "extras" that can throw someone off track, and, sometimes it seems like you can't get a break to get back on track. We have seen so many success stories as these women graduate and move on to get good jobs to be able to continue to support their families. And we haven't even begun to talk about the difference it makes in the lives of these kids. To be able to have some of the basics that we take for granted, and to get a little extra every now and then. Simply amazing! Sheila always says...we are not a hand out, we are a hand up!

the blessing I receive in hearing the story of these ladies whose lives are changed because they had the assistance they needed to be able to work, while bettering themselves by going to school, to be able to get a better job to support their families. It is awesome to see the support that Mom's Closet can give to these women and their children.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find a way to get the word out and bring in additional volunteers. Sometimes what we end up doing is so "last minute". Not for lack of planning, but because of the opportunities that arise. God is good. But because of this, we usually need help, and right away. We don't seem to have a big enough pool of volunteers to work with for these last minute opportunities.
