By Jim Hartlieb, MOM Board Member

I have been a proud board member and supporter of MOM for almost 10 years.  MOM has my steadfast support because of how hard I see our staff and volunteers work to directly and positively impact people in our community who need help the most.  

I think about how I feel and how my kids feel (ornery, cranky, not at our best!) when they are hungry and I think, “what if we had to live like that every day?”. 

We were all born into certain circumstances that may have helped or hurt our chances to have a successful, prosperous life.  Should those circumstances dictate how a person has to live their entire life? I don’t think so. 

Everyone deserves a chance.  I’ve been inspired by the stories of people who, when given a chance, use their abilities to rise up above their circumstances to make a better life for themselves and for their family.  MOM has played a role in many of these stories and I’m proud to have played a small role in it!
