Over the past two days we have shared the story of Cindy, a single mother who was living out of her car. With help from generous supporters like you, Cindy and her young daughter were finally able to start a new life.
A message from Darlene Newsom, UMOM CEO
In a matter of a few hours, 2017 will be coming to a close. I hope you will give what you can today to help many more families like Cindy’s here at UMOM. Because of supporters like you, Cindy attained a full-time job and she and her daughter were able to spend the holidays in their own home. Because of your support, Cindy finally feels hopeful for the future.
“I’m looking forward to the opportunities this year will bring. 2018 is going to be a fresh start for us, I can feel it!” – Cindy
We currently have 214 families on our waiting list for shelter, many who are living in their cars, in a park or in a tent.
UMOM is proud to help parents like Cindy get back on their feet so they can provide for their children. With your assistance, we can ensure no family ever has to spend the holidays in their car.
All of my best to you and yours in 2018,
Please Give Today.
