Through the HOME IS WHERE OUR HEART IS FOUNDATION.
A LITTLE ABOUT ME...
Once upon a time, I was a stay at home mom with a beautiful young son. Then one day a tragic event struck our little family. This slowly tore our family apart, piece by piece, until we ended up homeless.
Nothing in life prepares you for the devastation and grief that occurs... In an instant your world is turned upside down. Your child wants to go home, but there is no more home. With the help of my beloved family and friends, I eventually secured a roof over my son’s head. I had never imagined that this would happen to us... I found out the hard way that this could happen to anyone.
I then began the journey of transforming this unfortunate experience into the inspiration that propelled me toward making my lifelong dream of helping others come true.
WHAT'S THE PLAN?
Our vision is to empower homeless single mothers and their children, to enable them to rise out of poverty and hopelessness. We provide a lifeline to freedom by creating a network of kindness and constant support. They will learn the skills and mindset necessary, (through mentorship programs, job training and therapy) to stay off the streets and independently care for their family. These children are suffering and their life depends on their mothers getting the help they need to provide a better future.
I have the insight and passion for this mission, having lived through it myself... TOGETHER, I know we can help them change their story.
In order to accomplish these goals, I established a 501(c)(3) Non-profit charitable organization: HOME IS WHERE OUR HEART IS FOUNDATION
Up until now, I’ve borrowed from everyone willing to help, as well as spend my last dime to support this dream. I have legal, accounting and day-to-day foundation expenses that I can no longer self-fund...
Can you help?
The Holidays are here, as is the cold weather. We have already connected with several mothers in dire straits, and we meet more every day.
"More than half a million people are homeless each night in the United States, a new White House report has found. And nearly half of them are concentrated in one state: California."
Mothers are living in tents and cars with their babies, turned away from overcrowded shelters... They’re sleeping in dangerous conditions, like cold parks, with children! Let’s help these women.
Please help us help these mothers now, while we seek larger charitable contributions for the future.
IT TRULY TAKES A VILLAGE.
Through the power of social media and caring mothers supporting mothers, we were blessed with the opportunity to make a connection with Ms. Kay, and her son William. They have been homeless for over a year... This mom needs so much more than we are able to assist her with at the moment. For example, Ms. Kay needs a car. She has been trying very hard to find a job but it’s difficult without reliable transportation. Her son started preschool and her daughter is with her on the weekends, getting around for their activities has been challenging. They need clothing, daily essentials and much more. They are in temporary housing at the moment, then they will be in search of another home. We would like to help this mother find a permanent home, get an affordable & reliable used car, and a job... with your help.
THIS IS WHAT MS. KAY HAD TO SAY...
“Home is Where Our Heart is Foundation has helped us come this far with their continued kindness and generosity. My son and I were actually on the streets many times, just praying to God that someone would take notice! For over a year since we lost our home... from the streets of Anaheim, scraping all across two counties and the streets of North Hollywood... It took that long, even with a four-year-old child holding my hand, to get noticed by somebody who took us by both hands and lifted us out of the hopeless... Helping us in a REAL way, that was more than just for the moment.”
Ms. Kay, Thanksgiving 2019.
With donations from caring people like you, We were able to provide the means for Ms. Kay to cook a meal on Thanksgiving for her family! They were very thankful... and so were we.
We have also provided nights at a motel before she found temporary housing, Uber rides to job interviews and funds for little things (such as her commercial DL to apply for work), as well as lots of continued support and encouragement. We are hoping to provide Ms. Kay and others with Christmas dinner and a few gifts for their kids as well, with your help.
We humbly ask for your support. Your help will change children's lives for the better!
