Mission: Shelter from the rain inc is enriching the lives of women and children in need through acts of kindness and christianity that nuture the mind, body and soul.
Programs: The pantry pal program is the collection and distribution of nonperishable foods, household items and clothing for low-income single-parent families. We use these supplies to help struggling mothers provide for their households while dealing with various other financial demands.
the baby bundles program helps provide needed baby supply items (diapers, baby wipes, baby powder, etc) for newborns/toddlers and educational information for mothers.
support group and mentorship are a third area of accomplishment. The quarterly mommy meetup support group allows moms to meet with other moms for motivational talks while their children play. It is free & open to registered moms. We provide food, childcare, household & baby items, education & support to mothers. Educational topics & community resource information includes (but is not limited to) the following: breastfeeding, ged courses, healthcare, insurance, finance, health & nutrition, career preparation, etc. The "mothers with mentors" mentorship program is an extension of this support group and give mothers one-on-one guidance from a mentor in efforts to reach positive goals. This mentorship program is designed to meet additional needs of single parents and their families through a structured system of assistance. The documented outcomes of this assistance program will help single mothers in the areas of economic independence, health and wellness.
