We are always working on new programs and ways to assist parents. We hope to introduce child care assistance in the near future and institute a program that will allow churches and local businesses to partner with us so that we can bring the community together as we strive to stand as one. We would like to increase the level of the “Baskets of Love Program.” Presently we deliver two baskets to the floors of Egleston Children’s Hospital and Scottish Rite Children’s Hospital once a month.
