Mom God and Me create affordable homeownership and housing opportunities through innovative partnerships and initiatives that build healthy, vibrant families across Southwestern Ontario. The organization is specially committed to improving the quality of life for single mother families that are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. We identify, secure and renovate houses within the community through private and public funding. Children are often the ones most affected by homelessness. They may become withdrawn, angry and frequently display physical aggression amongst their peers. The future is our children and we must advocate protecting them. Through innovate and creative fundraising our goal is to secure affordable home for ten single mother families in 2002.
