Great Charitable Organizations That Help Families in Need

Volunteers from charitable organizations

Many people take for granted basic necessities that make living everyday life simple. However, there are disadvantaged families out there who are unable to put food on the table or provide a safe home. Thankfully, there are many organizations that help families in need.

I Have A Dream Foundation

This family charity offers various services that help people with their academics, emotional health, and finances. I Have A Dream Foundation works with children early on to establish a long-term relationship - preparing them for any future endeavors.

Family Promise

Family Promise is committed to helping low-income families with food, shelter, and support. Family Promise’s mission is “to help homeless and low-income families achieve sustainable independence through a community-based response.” The organization stays true to their promise by offering advice to combat homelessness, hosting family-oriented events, and providing other helpful resources for those who find themselves in trying times.

Habitat for Humanity

Habitat for Humanity helps families across America improve their living situations. Relying on the help of volunteers, this organization is able to provide families with safe living conditions, so they have one less thing to worry about. The organization also has Habitat ReStores, full of reused housing essentials donated by the local community.

Parents as Teachers

Parents as Teachers is another nonprofit organization that gives parents and caregivers guidance from trained professionals. The organization serves nearly 200,000 families in the United States. Parents as Teachers focuses on providing parents with the tools they need to help their child develop and ultimately allow them to reach their full potential.

LIFT

LIFT is another organization that helps families in need. LIFT connects parents with trained life coaches who can help them through a variety of events, such as receiving an education, finding a career, and establishing a healthy financial situation; the parents and coach create a Goal Acton Plan to work toward their aspirations. After two years with the organization, parents “graduate” from the program and begin to use the skills they gained to create a better future for themselves and their families. LIFT operates in major cities such as Chicago, Washington D.C., Los Angeles, and New York.
