PAST EVENTS

Mother’s day was a success!

We are happy to announce that this year’s annual Mother’s Day celebration was a success! We were able to give out bags worth more than $150! We would like to extend a thank you to all of our donors and everyone involved who made it possible. With the help of Dr. Grisel Voutsinas from the Banyan Halfway House and Michelle Taylor at the Riverside Halfway house, this drive was made possible. We are so grateful and we hope to be able to this drive again next year to help mothers in need in our communities.

Mother’s day donations

Our donors made this Mother’s Day very special by bringing hope to moms in Halfway house. Thanks to Commissioner Sally Heyman, Mirta de Perales, Dr Jay and Maria Amelua Torres, Kaba Law Group, Aventura Marketing Council, Sun Jewerly & Art, Miami Merchandise Mart, Hidalgo Kids, Jennifer Messemer-Skold , and volunteers for helping us accomplish our mission.
