Help for MOM's who choose Life

$410 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 7 people in 32 months
Father Michael J. McGivney Center of Hope and Healing is a 501c3 corporation which provides Grants to Homes in Illinois that empower women who choose LIFE

      The Homes we support are an extension of the work of Pregnancy Assistance Centers. Each woman is treated on an individual basis. Recognizing the talents of the human person,  programs are designed to help each person to use their talents to achieve eventual self‐sufficiency to help themselves and their child. Tools of education; of self esteem, of love of one's own life; to mention a few!  These homes offer our guests a place to stay where mothers can mature into a loving parents and at the same time, develop the life skills necessary to become self‐sufficient. We present our guests with a sense of being a member of a loving caring family.  

   Residents are eighteen years of age or older, usually referred  by one of the more than 300 Pregnancy Assistance Centers in the State of Illinois and of various racial/ethnic backgrounds. Often in difficult and complicated situations, the backgrounds of the mothers might include abusive relationships, poor understanding of self‐worth, no employment experience, limited education, and bad relationships with family members, or poor support networks. Women that are parenting or placing their child with an adoptive family are welcome. 
    Requests for funds  to support this mission were over $250,000.  Last year we were able to award grants to five Homes for a total amount of $75,000.     As you can see we fell far short of what is needed to help these homes provide help to Women and Babies.

     Every dollar donated goes directly to these homes.  

     Can you imagine a world where Women don't have to make a choice.  These homes are just the beginning of that world.  A world where we save Life and change hearts.

      You can make a change.  The women and children of
who reside in these Homes need your help.  

       We are forever grateful for your generousity.

We are in the process of collecting items, and request your assistance in making the Centers of Hope and Healing Fundraiser a success. It is our 6th Annual Pink and Blue Banquet to be held on August 11, 2017 at The Belvedere Banquets in Elk Grove Village, IL.

The Father Michael J. McGivney Center of Hope and Healing is a 501(c) (3) corporation whose mission is to provide transitional housing for women in difficult or unplanned pregnancies who choose to carry their baby to term.

This benefit is vital to our fund raising efforts in maintaining the ongoing daily needs of the Centers we fund throughout Illinois. Our entire staff is comprised of volunteers, such as myself, and is dedicated to this important mission.

We are grateful for any item or service your business would be generous enough to offer. Your business will be advertised in a list of sponsors and your participation will get community as well as state wide exposure from the large number of attendees.

Thank you for your time. We hope you will consider our letter and help us provide this necessary resource to women who choose LIFE.
