Currently our foundation is in need of your help. One of our vehicles is in need of repairs and is presently being worked on. Our goal is to raise $1,000 to cover the total cost of the repair work that is being done. We cannot express enough how vital the vehicle is to the foundation as it is used to transport food to clients in need, help assist clients with transportation to necessary appointments and to pick up material donations being made to the foundation. Please help up meet our fundraising goal. Click on the PayPal link to make your donation today.

Through the generous contribution from The Roy Houff Company our foundation was able to spread a little Mother's Day cheer. Our staff delivered beautiful roses to those who participate in our outreach program. This was a small token of gratitude to show them that we appreciate the hardwork that they have done in raising their children and will continue to do. We also gave flowers to the grandmothers who participate in our outreach program. Our grandmothers are our greatest treasure, as they have much wisdom, advice and love to share. We are greatful to have such wonderful, caring, strong women who have touched our lives and the lives of the children within our community.
