There are many ways we could use your help. Interested in volunteering as a family liaison? We have training opportunities available to walk you through the necessary steps to work directly with a family.
Perhaps you would be interested in making a donation to assist our families. No amount is too small and all donations will help to make a difference in the lives of the families we sponsor.
While each family is unique, some of the typical monthly expenses for assisted families (each family is assisted for a 6 month period):
Childcare or afterschool care: $400
Assistance with transportation costs (gas cards): $200
Tutoring for school aged children: $160
Other services we have provided include, but are not limited to, payment for activities for children, track out camps and school uniforms. In one instance, a mother’s wish was a family portrait. We are so grateful that we did as the mother passed away several weeks later. Once accepted to received services, we speak to each mother to determine her priority of wishes for her family. A budget for each family is then determined.
Maybe you know of business that would be willing to host a fundraiser for the Helene Foundation or work together to sponsor a family? We are always on the lookout for community partners!
Interested in becoming involved? Contact our Executive Director, Susan Bowers, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 919-280-7800. You CAN make a difference!
