A personal message from Molly Howieson

As many of you know, I share pictures of my grandkids. This year is a transition for my grandsons. My oldest started high school and the twins middle school. They have been living in the same home since the day their parents brought them home from the hospital. Tonight, children in our community don’t know where their sleeping tonight. Mom’s friends? The car? A church basement? Your support provides a safe apartment for up to two years. Families receive mentoring on their finances as well as support as needed like counseling, tutoring and education. My goal is the monthly rent of a typical two bedroom. Thank you for your support!
