Help Us Show 60 Homeless Moms That Every Mother Matters

Courageous, amazing women and their children will be the focus of a special Mother’s Day event as they journey toward successful, independent lives.

Join Us May 13, at Partners in Housing located on the grounds of the Myron Stratton Home.

Partners in Housing is hosting its annual Every Mother Matters celebration – a family day of fun and education on Saturday, May 13, for single mothers and their children participating in our one-year self-sufficiency program. Women with children make up a large part of the “invisible” homeless crisis in our community – women who have been driven into desperate circumstances due to domestic violence, job loss, or illness.

Each year, we seek to recognize and appreciate those who have joined our program as they strive to improve their education, and life skills, gain meaningful work, and achieve lasting self-sufficiency.

During our special event, mothers will enjoy self-care workshops, yoga, massages and haircuts – services coordinated for us by Leadership Pikes Peak. Children attending will create Mothers-Day cards (with the help of ANB Bank volunteers) and join a safety class led by members of the Colorado Springs Fire Department. Additionally, kids will be provided with flowers (donated by The Woman’s Club of Colorado Springs) to give mom on her special day. Each mother will also receive a personal hygiene basket, arranged with help from Pikes Peak United Way.

How can you help us? Your donation of brand new crock pots (any size) can help us celebrate these brave women who are working so hard to return to stability and independence. For more details and to coordinate your gift drop off, please contact our development manager, Dianne Reitan, at dreitan@partnersinhousing.org. As always, monetary contributions are gratefully accepted via the Donate Today button on our website homepage at: partnersinhousing.org.
