Our Stories

Everyone has a story to share.

Our time working directly with families gives us a firsthand view of what it’s like to go without the basics. The mothers, children, and families that we meet inspire our ideas and, oftentimes, solutions. We could not do what we do without the help of sponsors, donors and volunteers. Rather than have the stories come from us, we asked our extended BoH family to share their stories.

Babies of Homelessness is one of the best agencies out there. They have helped our daughter with so many needs when we were homeless, and I’m forever grateful. If you’re a family experiencing homelessness, please reach out to this wonderful group of volunteers.

I wish there were more agencies like Babies of Homelessness, but there is not because BOH is one of a kind. Your team has given me hope and taken so much stress away.

For me, this is an important and personal part of my life. We need to help each other become better so it’s a win-win situation. I help families in need and they help me to be a more harmonized and happy. When I see how families change and react after receiving basics for their children-when they light up and smile-I’m changing with them.

Babies of Homelessness brings a personal face to the homelessness crisis in our community and builds awareness about the under-reported, underserved homeless children in our neighborhoods. I believe in their hyperlocal mission and trust in their stewardship to fill the gap in services for our most vulnerable neighbors. I know where my donations go and what they go towards and as a parent, I know how necessary these donations are. I’m proud of the work BoH does to support families in our community.

Babies of Homelessness’ mission struck me when we were pregnant with our second child. I was broken-hearted with the fact that so many of our community’s most vulnerable children are suffering from something as simple as basic needs. Working in real estate, I always mention BoH in every class I teach and spread awareness to my clients of an issue that exists in our very own community.

I volunteer with BoH because I know firsthand how easy it is for a family to be homeless. Several of my family members have been there at various times. They don’t need pity or judgment, just practical help to meet basic needs —one less thing to worry about — and that’s what BoH does.
