The Sophie House News March 2018

Welcome Spring!


As we move forward through 2018 we want to share with you how much The Sophie House has grown into our mission to assist single women and mothers with the encouragement and support need to move them from instability to stability.

March is National Women’s History Month and as we look back we also look forward and see how much more we can do with the help of our community and partners! Please call or text 804-658-5214 and schedule a time to come see what we are doing at the community center.

We welcome visitors and questions as we continue to raise awareness about the struggles single mothers and single women face as they manage life without a support system- this is where The Sophie House steps in to help them find the services and resources they need to get back on track.

We look forward to hearing from you!

“I am just trying to stay focused and get my family back on track. I thank you for your advice. It really made a difference in how I viewed things, you helped me put things into perspective. I also thank you for the prayers. They are always needed and appreciated”

 


 

 

Support The Sophie House

Calling All Mothers and Mother Figures!

We will be kicking off our Sophie House Mother of the Year Campaign and we are looking for amazing women that you would like to nominate and reward. We all have someone in our life – Mother, Grandmother, Teacher, Aunt, Cousin – who have helped mold us into the people we are today and The Sophie House wants to recognize these women in our community.

Be thinking about who you would nominate and then be ready to share the story of why she should be Mother of the Year. All the money raised in this campaign will go toward our Housing and Supportive services programs to help our clients with the financial, emotional, and spiritual support to move toward independence.

The Campaign kicks off in April with an event at the community center April 14 and a celebration May 14 to recognize The Sophie House Mother of the Year!

“When I came here for help, it meant everything to me for somebody to help me

and talk through everything so I didn’t feel badly”
