The joy of giving back. #GivingTuesday

The joy of giving back. #GivingTuesday

A recent graduate of our Women's Recovery Program shared this picture with us.

She captioned her photo, "When you have parent-teacher conferences 2 different times in a week, and have to take the bus 1.5 hours each, just for a 15 minute meeting, and you are totally grateful the entire time." #thankgodigettodothis #sobermom #recoverylife #sobersinglemom #lovelife #jesus #joy

A little over a year ago, this mom told us she didn't know how to be a mom. Caught addiction and homelessness, she hadn't been one for quite some time.

But donors like you provided a safe place for her to learn all of the things that she never had modeled for her.

Giving back changes how we see the world and our neighbors in need. It fills our hearts with joy. And there’s no better season to share the joy of giving back than Christmas!

In support of #GivingTuesday, a friend of the Mission is challenging us all to give back with our holiday shopping! We’ve set up a $30,000 Challenge Grant to — DOUBLE your impact — when you shop our 2017 Christmas Gift Catalog before midnight on Tuesday, November 28.

Your gift may be as essential as meals served with care — or as urgent as a warm bed for a night

Or, the gift of bringing joy to a child. A child who may be getting their mom back just in time for Christmas.

Whatever gift you choose — you’ll make an eternal difference this Christmas.
