The faces of our program & GG 50% Donor Match Day July 12

By Barbara S. Rosasco | Secretary & Treasurer

Self sufficiency is an important goal
Self sufficiency is an important goal

50% GlobalGiving Donor Match Day fromm 9:00 am July 12

We often talk about the families in our program, so the purpose of today's update is  personalize our stories and put faces to some of the personal stories that we have told you about in the past.

Each one of our fragile familes has taken a journey through life that most of us would find unimaginable.  However, instead of a  living a desperate existance  of life on the street in extreme poverty, our goal has always been to create  safe " normal" living conditions for  these families.  We provide basic housing and food support, social support to help families access medical care as needed  and educational support to help the children in our families to stay in school and work torward the lifelong goal of breaking the cycle of inherited poverty. We actively encourage members of our programs to work as they are able,  as a purpose filled life and one of even partial self sufficiency provides them with  a sense of  some personal control and dignity in a life hijacked by illness and adversity. For several  of our familes, the breadwinner passed away from illness , leaving families in dire straights. Without our program's support that initial tragedy of losing a husband or wife, father or mother ,   would have been followed by other suffering. Instead, our program can provide  these families have a stable living condition and help them to try to move forward despite formidable challenges.  

Thanks to you, our thoughtful donors, we have accomplished many of these  goals for our families and as we move foward, we have not lost sight our challenge  to help the children in these familes gain the life skills needed  to help propel them forward toward a better life. 

GlobalGivings 50% donor match day can help your donation dollars to work even harder. We hope that you will join us and help us to continue our efforts.
