Partnering with individuals, businesses and organizations in our community is the key to our success. We never intend to reinvent a program that already exists. For the last couple of years we have been able to listen to the needs of families stuck in generational poverty and allow this to guide our efforts. Mentoring, GED training, family support groups and budgeting money are just a few areas we have identified as areas of greatest need. If you offer a program or service that follows our mission and helps get these families on the right track we would love to talk with you to see how we can collaborate. We want to partner with you by providing resources, volunteers or funding so that YOU can help our neighbors in Bartow County!
In addition, the only way we are able to provide as many opportunities as we do is through our incredible volunteers who work tirelessly in each of our areas of service.
Please join the BLESS Coalition and our monthly partners to help those in need in our community. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on how to get involved.
