Transformation and High Impact:
The mission of OTHERS is to impact the lives of those experiencing hardship by conducting needs assessments, providing financial assistance and facilitating holistic support through resources and referrals, with the ultimate goal of self-sufficiency. By standing in the gap for those experiencing job loss, medical hardship, domestic violence, single parenting, poverty and homelessness, our services produce life-changing effects. We advocate for our clients, reducing harm both individually and collectively, which impacts the community at large. We also strive, through education and awareness, to involve community members to be part of the solution. This combination of providing education, raising awareness, and involving the community as a whole produces transformational effects for our clients.
With the funding for this project, OTHERS will meet the needs of the underserved in the community and expand our services to impact more lives.
