Review for MOMS CLOSET RESOURCE CENTER INC, Louisville, KY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.
