Since 1986, we have provided women and children with a hospitable place to receive nutritious food and needed clothing. Since our inception, we have expanded our basic services to include housing, education, an annual Christmas toy giveaway, and most recently, a 3000 square foot community garden.
We:- Alleviate suffering by providing direct social services to the economically disadvantaged and disenfranchised.- Increase the marketability of our clients by providing skill- building courses.- Reduce and help break the cycle of poverty by providing a solid value-based education to selected client family cohorts.- Address the desperate need for affordable housing by owning and operating an apartment complex specifically designated to serve families with very low incomes.- Beautify the neighborhood and give client families the numerous therapeutic and practical benefits afforded by a community garden.- Foster nurturing relationships, encourage self-determination, and advocate for change in systems that oppress.- Refer clients to agencies with whom we network.
