I Like Helping Our Program Families

We were able to provide Christmas for families in need who otherwise would have had little to nothing.


Program Families

The generosity of your organization shone brightly during a time of need for several families in our program who were grappling with hardship. Here are just a few examples:

Family #1

Her journey had been filled with hardships, having experienced cycles of foster care and the unexpected descent into a chaotic marriage. For a decade, she stood by her husband, until his drug addiction shattered their world. With their belongings sold and abuse escalating, she bravely fled with her two children, seeking refuge in a hotel room. The timely monetary donation provided much-needed relief, offering a glimmer of hope amidst the uncertainty. With funds needed for childcare and transportation, this gift arrived as a beacon of light, guiding her towards a path of healing and renewal during the holiday season.

Family #2

The mother had endured the setback of losing her job due to a car accident that left her unable to commute. Striving to provide for her family while navigating the challenges of single parenthood, she faced the daunting task of finding new employment that could accommodate her children’s needs. When this organization blessed her during the holiday season, tears of gratitude flowed freely as she expressed her overwhelming relief, feeling as though a burden had been lifted from her shoulders. In this moment of vulnerability, she found solace in the kindness bestowed upon her, allowing her to embrace the holiday season with renewed optimism and a sense of ease.

Family #3

Left to provide for her family of five after her husband’s departure, she navigated the challenges of homelessness, spending two years in a hotel while working tirelessly to make ends meet. Juggling full-time employment with additional gigs like door dash, she exemplified unwavering determination to ensure a roof over their heads and food on the table. With her recent entry into our program, hope began to dawn on the horizon, but it was the unexpected Christmas blessing that rendered her speechless. Tears of disbelief mingled with overwhelming gratitude as she expressed the fact that no one had ever extended such generosity towards her.

The donation, arriving at a time of dire need, provided not just financial relief, but a profound sense of validation and support. It covered the exact amount she had lost during her recent absence from work due to health concerns, serving as a tangible reminder that she was not alone in her journey towards self-sufficiency.

The work we do every day and the situations we see and hear can be very heavy. At times, it can feel daunting when we don’t have the resources to help ALL the things that are happening. As a Christian nonprofit, we rely primarily on individual donors, churches, fundraising events, and some grants to serve those who are hurting in our community. While we steward the funds well and can solve many problems, there is never enough to deal with all the struggles our clients face. It’s hard on the heart, especially around the holidays when families just want to feel the same joys many of us are blessed to experience.

So, with the generosity of people like you, we were able to provide Christmas for our families in need who otherwise would have had little to nothing. It lifted the spirits of everyone on our team and we felt immense joy in seeing our clients blessed! Thank you and God bless you all for all that you do!
