Families Helping Families provides apartments and volunteer mentors to homeless families while they work to reclaim their lives through education. Many of them are led by single mothers, have lived in high poverty, and have been victims of domestic violence. They struggle every day to obtain housing, food, and clothing. These women want to become self-sufficient but lack the financial means to provide for their families.

We want to help change their lives for the better! Please join us at Trivia Night on Saturday, April 6, 2013, to raise money to help these families. Families Helping Families has NO administrative expenses, so every dollar we raise helps local families who are homeless – $210 provides housing for a family for one week; $900 provides housing for a month.

Please help us raise at least $3,000 for Families Helping Families.

        
How can you help?
