DW Honors Mothers
Being a mom is a tough job!
Imagine the extra stress our homeless mothers face:
besides the usual challenges of parenting, they are often job searching, apartment hunting and attempting to stay free of drugs and alcohol.
We also celebrate our "honorary moms" at the shelter who pitch in daily to help with childcare, transportation to appointments, and so much more. It's heartwarming to see our older single residents connecting with the children at the shelter.
On Mother's Day, we will be giving each of our "moms" a gift basket filled with lots of pampering goodies to honor them.
Please consider donating today so we can continue our work with homeless families.
Everyone deserves an opportunity for a fresh start...
and to address their issues in a safe and compassionate environment.
Dakota Woodlands (DW) can assist twenty-two homeless families at a time with housing and training that includes life skills, financial literacy, and personal wellness.
The award winning program at DW is known for its friendly atmosphere, personal attention, and successful "one shelter stay" for its residents.
Over 92% of the residents who participate in the full program succeed in staying stably housed after leaving the shelter.
