Mama J’s Helping Hand is a private, non-profit community outreach program whose mission is to empower families by offering a handup, not a handout. In addition to meeting the immediate need of food, clothing and household goods for community members, Mama J’s supports those in abusive families, often with intrafamiliar generational addition problems, break out of the addiction cycle by teaching them life skills. All of Mama J’s programs strive to instill in a sense of personal responsibility and self-reliance in the individual. Mama J’s Helping Hand is a safe place where people can express their feelings of fear, hurt and anything else they are feeling and have bottled up inside and get the help they need.
