Eve's Daughters is an organization that helps single moms get back on their feet with community, seminars, financial help, and so much more. We are volunteers who make a meal one night a month about four times a year. It is a privilege and a blessing to us to be able to make a meal so these moms can come together and share with one another and to spur one another on. The children also get to interact and make crafts and share with one another. Sharing stories and knowing that one is not alone on this tough journey is refreshing and encouraging and gives one energy to keep going even when life is really hard. We are also donors and we appreciate that Eve's Daughters works hard to use money wisely and efficiently to help mom's in crisis get through and feel like someone cares and they can make it. This is a tough journey to make and Eve's Daughters helps ease the burden in real and practical ways that changes lives. We are honored to be part of this organization and be able to support through volunteering and financial means.
Eve's Daughters provides a solid foundation for women who need help after divorce or domestic violence. The women who founded and run Eve's Daughters have been through tough situations themselves and through smart work and determination have succeeded in moving forward in their lives. They want to pass along all the knowledge and information they have gained so other women can move forward and navigate the diffulties of life after experiencing trouble or trauma. Eve's Daughters is a pillar of the community because as an organization it takes nothing and gives back everything these women need, with love, kindness, respect, dignity, and care. Eve's Daughters helps make women whole again by providing the resources and connections women need.
I interact with Eve's Daughters every month and I have for the past year. My main interactions involve doing crafts with a group of kids while their mom's chat with other mom's over dinner. As a high school student, sometimes the last thing I want to do is volunteer to watch a group of kids in my spare time. But the thing about Eve's Daughters is that the second I get to the meetings, I can feel the support and the good work being done there. While I only play a small role in this by watching the children while the mother's get to talk with each other, I always leave feeling blessed that I got to help them in some way. And the kids are pretty great too. Throughout high school I have participated in a variety of volunteer situations, but I must say Eve's Daughters is something special. The work they are doing is not only good for the moms involved, but the kids are given a creative and social outlet as well. Overall, I only observe a small portion of the good that Eve's Daughters does in my community. These ladies are wonderful and deserve recognition for the time effort that they put in to supporting mothers in need.
So many of my friends are in the category of those that this nonprofit serves: single moms. Since I've heard and witnessed so many of the stories that my friends have shared, I wanted to be involved to offer encouragement to women in similar circumstances. When contacting the directors of Eve's Daughters (ED), about how to plug in and be of assistance, I received very quick and clear responses. Once the ball started rolling as a volunteer, I was pleased to discover how quickly and graciously the inevitable questions that I had were answered. Appreciation is readily offered, as well. This has motivated me to involve more of my friends in supporting and volunteering to assist ED. They have been as impressed and delighted, as I have been.
This is a great place for single moms to come and have childcare and a nice meal. They get to fellowship with other single moms and their kids enjoy making crafts. It's a great organizaion to provide support during a tough time!
