The Florida International Bankers Association’s (FIBA) Women’s Leadership Committee, in coordination with the Community Relations Committee, will be honoring the wonderful mothers at Chapman Partnership during this Mother’s Day by providing them customized bath baskets. The 2017 Mother’s Day Event prepared by the WLC was a true success, which we would not have been able to accomplish without your generous support and contributions. We were able to provide 100 baskets for all the mothers at both homeless centers!
These wonderful women are a symbol of courage, as in the adversity, they embrace the support provided by Chapman Partnership as this institution helps women, children and men to build a positive future by providing the resources and assistance critical to grow and become independent.
Chapman Partnership helps the homeless by providing a comprehensive support program that includes emergency housing, meals, health, dental and psychiatric care, day care, job training, job placement and assistance with securing stable housing.
At Chapman Partnership, 44 percent of residents are families with children on any given night. The center provides early childhood education, tutoring, mentoring and a variety of other services specifically for families.
According to the National Coalition to End Homelessness, the top five reasons of homelessness are: 1) lack of affordable housing, 2) lack of a living wage, 3) domestic violence, 4) medical bankruptcy, and 5) mental illness. None of these reasons are related to choice as they can happen to anyone.
As Mother’s Day is approaching, let us start reflecting on the joy and blessings in our own lives and consider those who are less fortunate. We humbly ask that you help us in our mission to bring cheer, support and encouragement to these wonderful women.
The Bath Baskets will be distributed by FIBA's Women's Leadership Committee to all the mothers at Chapman Partnership on both locations, during the weekend of April 28th. We ask that you please make your donation by Friday, April 20th to allow us enough time to buy the bath items to prepare the baskets for their distribution.
We thank you in advance for your generous contributions. May all the mothers in your lives be blessed abundantly in their special day and always!
With our warmest regards,
FIBA's Women's Leadership Committee
