You can provide basic needs for a family in Charlotte! Each family in our Family Assistance Program receives Essentials Baskets filled with cleaning supplies and household goods in the spring as well as grocery store gift cards to help them feed their families.
Baskets will include basic cleaning supplies (a detailed list will be emailed to you after you sign up) as well as optional items that may be included. If bargain shopping at Walmart the list of items required will cost approximately $125. Feel free to add other items you think they may want or need.
In February, we had our educational workshop for the families in our Family Assistance Program. These workshops are held monthly and teach families various topics like finances & budgeting, parenting skills, etc. With the assistance of Life Coach Julie Hutton, this month we worked on goal setting. Our families had a productive conversation around what they hope to accomplish in the near future and created awesome Vision Boards to help show what some of those goals might look like to them!
