Changing Lives for the Future!
Organized by: Changing Lives For the Future
Our mission is to sponsor young single mothers through the provision of short term financial resources to meet everyday needs, while assisting them with developing practical daily living skills.
We are two women that have experienced overcoming the daunting financial and emotional challenges of being young, single mothers. We were financially and educationally disadvantaged, however through proper financial planning, career guidance and mentorship we were able to beat the odds. We are now beginning our mission to give back to today's young, single mothers through providing financial assistance and basic financial life skills guidance around creating a household budget, timely bill payment, credit building, establishing emergency savings, employment basics, etc., that will empower/equip these women to become productive citizens, taking pride in themselves and further insuring their ability to care for themselves and their child.
Currently, we have identified a 24 year old single mother of a 1 month old son. She lost her job and apartment during the pregnancy and is seeking employment while hoping to complete her final 2 college courses in order to obtain her bachelor’s degree. We are currently contributing $600/month toward her and her son's basic necessities. We are fundraising for the following short term pressing needs: Housing, Daycare and Transportation costs.
Your contribution may not be tax deductible, but is fully auditable. We want to fully disclose to you, before you donate, that we are IN THE PROCESS of formally establishing our charity.
We are simply two women that did not succumb to the statistics and we want to help these women excel in life and see their situation as an opportunity to overcome the odds.
