“I can’t tell you how often MOM is on my mind and how much I appreciated the help you gave me at one of the worst times of my life. It’s really tough on the psyche when you literally don’t have even one thing in your kitchen cupboards or refrigerator. As my unemployment continued to stretch out, I lost my confidence in myself and my ability to take care of my family.” This is what Carol, a former client, wrote to MOM recently.

When Carol unexpectedly lost her job, she came to MOM for help. She filled her shopping cart with cheese, cereal and carrots in the food pantry so that her children would have enough to eat. MOM also helped her pay her utility bills and provide her with some monetary assistance to pay rent and avoid eviction. After a year of unemployment, Carol now has a full-time, managerial position at a biotech company in Madison. The position pays well and enables her to once again feel confident about herself and her future. “It was through the support I got at MOM that I was able to once again feel confident about my life and my future,” Carol wrote.

Through your generosity and compassion, MOM was able to provide emergency funds, counseling and referral services to nearly 300 households like Carol’s in west Madison, Middleton and Cross Plains in 2017. Please join with us today to fill grocery carts with carrots—and to provide families the confidence they need to move forward.
