We EMPOWER women to overcome their circumstances through mentoring and available community resources.
The John B. Moss Memorial Program for Emergency Shelter and Housing Expenses
We help women and families in Northeast Florida transition out of homelessness and avoid homelessness and eviction by assisting with temporary housing expenses which include: short term rent, security deposits and application fees, as well as extended stay motel costs for "in-between" living situations.
Essential Furnishings and Family Items
This program provides essential household furnishings like beds, toddler beds, cribs, kitchen tables and chairs, and dressers. Family items provided may include: sheets, blankets, towels, dishes, microwaves, clothing, and baby clothes and items. This program is powered through donations from the Northeast Florida area. After the initial interview, one of our donation coordinators conducts a home-visit to evaluate the needs of the client. We pick up donated items and deliver them to our client’s homes.
Adult Continuing Education Scholarships and Mentoring
We mentor young women in Adult Continuing Education programs and offer scholarships to women who wish to pursue their GED or an Adult Certificate Program to further their education but can not afford to on their own. Our goal is to help women break down the barriers that block them from progressing in their education and being successful in the work force.
