  • Too often many families living in poverty feel isolated and powerless.  Sometimes having someone who will take the time to listen and help with basic needs like diapers, bus passes or shoes for the children is enough to keep them going. 


    We connect interested volunteers to opportunities to connect with families in this more relational way.
