We are a "GRASS ROOTS' organization, that depends solely on the generosity of our donors, partners, volunteers, family and friends. Without whom it would be difficult to assist all of the residents that we have.
We hold 2 major fundraisers a year, our Spring Musical Extravaganza and our fall classic (coat and school supply drive). This allows us to provide additional services such as:
-providing (emergency) diapers and baby food
- personal needs (on a case by case scenarios
- Health and Resource Fairs
