The Building Hope, Strengthening Communities capital campaign, started in the summer of 2013 and has quietly raised almost $1,200,000 by the end of 2016 with the help and generosity of so many individuals and businesses from the area.
We can't thank you enough for believing in MOM and our mission to prevent homelessness and end hunger for the many families that come to us in need of assistance. The facility has allowed for expanded capacity and increased efficiency in food and clothing storage, distribution and management, as well as space for enhanced client services. Simply put, the new facility has enabled MOM to serve an average of 65 families per day six days a week with the capacity for more.
We have great news! Because of the support and generosity of the community to the Building Hope, Strengthening Communities capital campaign, MOM has been able to pay off the mortgage on the facility and MOM is now debt free. We are a full year ahead of schedule which allows us to focus on our programs, the people we serve, and other important site improvement projects.
Early on we knew that we would have to look at improving or repairing our parking lot. Since we have moved in, we have seen volunteers, clients and staff slip, trip and fall due to uneven surfaces and patch work of pavement, some serious enough where they have needed medical attention. The safety of the many visitors to our facility is of the highest priority.
D'Onfrio Kottke and Associates has graciously agreed to provide a site engineering plan to help us get the most competitive bid. We have some funds set aside that are restricted for the parking lot replacement but need your help in reaching our original $1,400,000 capital campaign goal. This would allow us to make our facility much safer for all that visit and provide MOM with a building reserve fund for the future.
If you would like to donate now you can send your investment to MOM at 3502 Parmenter in Middleton, care of "Parking lot fund" or donate online.
If you would like to make a multi-year pledge, speak with someone about the campaign, or would like a tour of the facility, please contact Al Ripp, Executive Director at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 826-3408.

Bill McDonough the Market President for Starion Financial pledged a $100,000 gift to the MOM Capital Campaign. This was an unsolicited contribution from Starion Financial and the first toward the campaign.
MOM’s foundation was built on the compassion of those who wanted to make a difference in the communities where they live. They cared for the well-being of their neighbors whether they were friends, neighbors or total strangers searching out a better life for themselves and their families.
