As we were saying . . .
“My daughter is happy,” said the girl’s dad. Because of YOU, Luz was able to provide this father with something that some of us take for granted, styling our hair.
Because of YOU, Luz was not only able to teach this father but also provide the little girl with a basket full of hair supplies -- hairspray, a brush, mirror, bows and more!
This is only one of many meaningful touches that you have provided to children and families in our care. Because of your generosity:
Sasha, 17, was able to attend the high school prom with her friends, pick out a beautiful sequined yellow dress, and even get her hair done. She later told us, “I felt so pretty!”
Twins Jonathan and Jasmine were able to have space of their own. Growing up they shared one bedroom. As the two got older they even battled over who would be able to have “the room.” Because of you, we were able to build a wall in the shared bedroom in order for the two teens to have spaces of their own!
Your support provided Lorraine, a mother of four and survivor of domestic abuse, bus passes to grocery shop at her convenience. One donor even donated a gift card to Lorraine so she would purchase herself a much-needed new pair of shoes – something she had not done in a long time!
All of these gestures might not seem like a big deal to you, but to many of our families it means a breath of hope and a step forward.
