Supporting Wings for Women

 In August, Big Heart is supporting Wings for Women.
Mission Statement
Empowering homeless and impoverished women to overcome despair through basic living support, coaching, and guidance to lead self-sustainable, productive lives….
Goals
    •    To provide a clean, safe, sober-living home environment where women and their children feel welcomed and supported in their transition to becoming independent members of the community.
    •    To offer education, job training and skill-building opportunities for women to prepare themselves for self-sufficiency.
Values
    •    We believe everyone who is given a chance, regardless of the past, can excel with support and community intervention.
    •    We believe in the power of mentoring to help people achieve their dreams. By motivating, supporting, and creating opportunities for others to excel, mentors are valuable role models that build confidence and self-esteem.
    •    We believe in the ability to empower people by educating them about systems of societal dysfunction, thereby transforming their beliefs.

Our Family Services

July is Our Family Services month 
at Big Heart Coffee
These are some of the services Our family Services provides for Tucson.
"Our mission is to eliminate homelessness and strengthen our community. We do this by:
    • providing stability in times of crisis
    • linking people to support and resources
    • supporting social connectedness
    • engaging our neighbors to tackle tough community issues.
Our continuum of care helps homeless children, youth and families into safe, stable housing and on to independent lives through street outreach, shelter and support, and case management. We help build a better community through counseling, education and skill building, services for elders and adults with disabilities, information and referral, and our Center for Community Dialogue.
Our Family Services provides shelter and support to homeless children, youth and families. We promote peace and understanding by helping people talk to each other. We help people learn to be better parents, improve their lives, their relationships, and build stronger families. We help elders and adults with disabilities live safely and with dignity in their own homes."

Volunteering & Internships
Volunteers who give their time and talents are an integral part of Our Family – from volunteer community mediators who help their neighbors resolve their disagreements, to seniors who help other seniors reduce the loneliness in their lives. Counseling and case-management interns earn school credit and gain valuable experience in our programs working with young people, families or seniors, and opportunities are available for people who speak Spanish. Click here for more info.

You can donate directly to Our Family Services here.
