The Moss Foundation-32-0373693

Posted By: Melvin Moss (July 5, 2022)
The Moss Foundation's mission is to Motivate, Encourage, and Inspire children in Metro Detroit in three ways: Housing, Education and Residential Treatment Facilities. Motivate (Housing): We want to MOTIVATE current and prospective residents to become homeowners so that Southeast Michigan children have stable environments to learn and play in. Encourage (Education): We want to ENCOURAGE our children to become EDUCATED ENTREPRENEURS. We provide annual scholarships to Metro Detroit children who are majoring in business with an interest in entrepreneurship. Inspire (Residential Treatment Facilities): We believe that every Detroit child should have access to mental health. Children are truly an Inspiration and we support our children with psychotherapy sessions. With this $1,000 we will reward underprivileged children with a visit to Camp Cedar and the Underground Railroad Museum. Camp Cedar will allow kids to learn about what camping means and the safety measures surrounding it. Thank you in advance!

Courageous Kids

Posted By: Jamie Mulvenna (July 5, 2022)
In December 2010, after working as a certified child life specialist in the hospital setting, our founder Terri Hocking realized the importance of helping children cope with life-threatening medical conditions at home, as well as in the hospital.

Terri founded the nonprofit, Courageous Kids, on the belief that it takes both a supportive family and community to help children see past their fears, anxiety, medications, treatments, and pain.

In doing so, we are able to help mitigate the negative effects of stress on a child’s growth and development. The organization hosted their first event for Courageous Kids and their families in 2011.

Courageous Kids plans fun activities and events for Southeast Michigan children with life-threatening medical conditions and their families to provide positive distraction, family bonding, and emotional support for the whole family.

Hillman Area Lions Club

Posted By: Barbara Durflinger (July 5, 2022)
Several years ago, the Hillman Lions were approached to provide weekend food backpacks for our elementary school children. The need in our area is so great, the program has expanded from providing for 12 students to 40. We realized that food insecurity in our area went beyond children, so we began hosting a monthly Pop-Up Pantry which serves 150-200 families with fresh vegetables and fruit, meat and canned goods. We have a small club (14 members), so the fundraising to continue these programs has been challenging. A $1000 grant would be a great help to us in feeding our community.
