My Bat Mitzvah project is to help homeless people. I am working to raise money for the Primo Center for Women and Children, which focuses on helping homeless families. Did you know that half of the homeless people in Chicago are families and more than 1/3 of the homeless people in Chicago are children?! A lot of them are mothers and their children who left a home where someone was abusing them. They are faced with the challenges of getting a good education and having enough food to eat at a very young age. They have very difficult lives and a lot of these children have depression. If they don’t get help, many will have lots of other problems when they get older.
The Primo Center for Women and Children focuses on helping to get these families into a house. They provide temporary housing to 184 people and permanent housing to 78 families. I want to help them do more. My goal is to raise money for a family that is moving in to permanent housing. The money I raise will help this family start their new life in their new home. We will provide them with basic things like blankets and towels, eating utensils, pots to cook with, plates to eat on, clothing and more. The money will also help pay for people like psychologists and social workers who will help the family deal with all the other challenges and help them to get a job so that they can have happier and healthier lives. It would make me happy if you made a donation to the Primo Center to help a homeless family have a place to live and get the help they need.
