2020-2021 Annual Report Highlights

Empowering Resiliency

Resiliency was reflected through our organization, as we addressed emotional impact, food insecurity and housing instability and helped children and families become resilient in their own lives.

“As a mother, having a place for my children to shower and sleep and not have to wonder if we are going to have food to eat is a blessing.”

— Cristina, Housing Program Client

Our mission is to help families raise emotionally and physically healthy children and have a place to call home.

Our Impact

44% of the children we serve come from single-parent households; 61% of caregivers are female, and 79% of our clients are from underrepresented communities of color.
