A Meaningful Mother’s Day Gift: Help Mothers and their Children Escape Homelessness

Donate to CaringWorks Today


$200 towards $500

I decided to do something unique this Mother's Day to honor the amazing mothers that I have in my life and remember those who are no longer with us. My mom has been a supportive, loving, and encouraging figure in my life that I am so grateful for every day that I get to spend with her. I'm inspired by my Godson's mom who is a hardworking, devoted, and caring mom who I could not be more proud of. I am also so lucky to have many other mother figures in my life that treat me as their own daughter, many of which have been a part of my life since childhood. Seeing good friends become mothers is a beautiful thing to witness that always warms my heart. I have friends who have lost their mothers and it creates a void that nothing can really replace because mothers play such an important role in our lives.

I work as the Associate Director of Residential Services for CaringWorks, a nonprofit organization that works to end homelessness throughout metro Atlanta, and they have a goal to raise $10,000 toward programs and services—including quality supportive housing, behavioral health, employment assistance, and more—for mothers in the program who are working hard to improve their quality of life and circumstances.

I am trying to raise money to help CaringWorks reach its goal by Mother's Day on Sunday, May 14. Please consider making a donation as a meaningful way to honor your mother or her memory this Mother's Day.

CaringWorks serves more than 75 families, many of which include single mothers who have faced extreme adversity such as violence, abuse, chronic health problems, mental health challenges and more, and your donation will help these mothers break the cycle of homelessness with the transformational support they need to provide a better life for themselves and their children. Honor your mother—or her memory—with a donation to CaringWorks that will help mothers in the program escape homelessness and regain stability for themselves and their families.
