“Never doubt that a small group of committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” – Margaret Mead
More than ever during these challenging economic times, our families need your help as they move forward on their life journey toward financial independence and self-sufficiency. With limited funding and staff resources, our volunteers provide additional support such as:
• Assisting our residents in becoming financially independent by teaching them how to set up a bank account, save, budget, and pay bills on time in addition to tutoring them on why having good credit is an essential part of being fiscally responsible and self-sufficient.
Vocational & Career Guidance:
• Our parents have many skills and are already equipped with the potential to make it in the world. All they need is some help. By providing encouragement, guidance, and enabling our parents to link with your contacts throughout the community, you can help them find interim or long-term positions. You can also help teach them to prepare a resumé as well as dress, prepare, and rehearse for a job interview.
Healthy Parenting/Healthy Lifestyles:
• It is not easy being a single parent with little or no education, financial resources or family support to fall back on. Our parents benefit from the help of volunteers who have professional backgrounds in early childhood education, teen counseling, nutrition, and exercise. With this help, our parents can be equipped to make better lifestyle choices and focus on being productive, nurturing parents.
Working with Young Children:
• If you like to read to children, work on small art projects, or simply enjoy a game of kickball, our Early Learning Center needs your help! And we are always looking for tutors for our older children.
• We welcome faith-based organizations who wish to participate in our programs and activities and offer spiritual guidance that gives our families hope for a better future.
Living for Change!
