HFF's "Mother's Day Mission" provides resources to support the mothers we serve on their journey towards housing, financial, and educational stability.
Mother's Day is a time to celebrate the strong and resilient mothers in our lives. At Home for Families, we believe that every mother has a right to and deserves a safe and stable home to raise her children in. We need your help to make sure that every mother has the opportunity to provide stability for her children.
Your gift has a profound ability to reduce the unique barriers each of these women face, while having a long-term impact on their journey.
Maya, a client of ours, came to HFF along with her infant son, after her parents divorced and abandoned her. She was homeless and had no support system. Maya was determined to create a better life for her son, but she needed help to do it. Thanks to the support of donors like you, we were able to provide Maya with a safe and stable home. We also connected her with case management services and support to help her overcome the barriers that led to her homelessness. With our help, Maya was able to secure steady employment and start saving for a brighter future for her and her son.
A Mother's Day Message from "Maya"
"As a young child, I struggled to understand how it was possible for anyone to not have a home. And then, my story happened. At 18, I found myself expecting my son and living in the streets. The nurse in the delivery room told me that my parents chose to name me the perfect name. When I asked her why, she explained that the meaning of Maya is “Good Mother.” The instant that Jayden was born I knew that I had the strength to overcome my obstacles. It took people that I didn’t even know to get us through the challenges and into our home. It started with that message from the delivery nurse, and it continued with the partnership. I have with my case manager at Home for Families. Mother’s Day means so much to me this year.”
Maya's story is just one example of the impact your donation can make. By giving to Home for Families, you can help us provide critical services to mothers who are either experiencing homelessness or on the verge of losing their home. Your support can help us provide safe and stable homes, case management, and supportive services to help families overcome the challenges they face.
This Mother's Day, we invite you to honor the strong and resilient mothers in your life by making a donation to Home for Families. Your contribution will make a real difference in the lives of families who need it most.
Together, we will end homelessness for families and children in Columbus, Ohio.
