We are founded by a core of beliefs
These are to
To inspire with courage and confidence.
To make and grow stronger.
To Impart knowledge and skills to help learn as by example.
To provide what is necessary to accomplish a task or satisfy a need.
To prepare intellectually.
To bring back to an original or former, more desirable condition.
What We Do
Assist with Immediate Needs:
At our office located in Longwood, we are able to assist single mothers with immediate needs through our clothing closet, food pantry, donated vehicles, and prayer as well as connecting them to community resources.
Single moms can enjoy the convenience of a weekly Bible study conference call every Tuesday from 7:30-8:30 pm. The call number is (563) 999-2090 and the access code is 738171.
*Our Monthly Gatherings are a time of Faith and Fellowship for the whole family at a local park on the 3rd Saturday of the month.
*Outreach opportunities to a local nursing home and partnering organizations allowing families to experience serving others.
*Our amazing moms volunteer at our annual "Back 2 School" events and "Beauty for Ashes" Auction/Dinner.
Embracing a mom = HOPE for her children
Meeting the spiritual and physical NEEDS NOW
The families who walk through the doors of E.S.T.H.E.R. are given food, clothing, household items, and connections within the community to help them continue in their success. The items that the families receive come from generous donations throughout our community.
Being a single mother can be such a rewarding experience. Although the budget is tight….living and experiencing life does not have to break the budget. We have a “family day” every month where opportunities for creating memories as a family are made. Whether we are reaching out through serving our community, enjoying a time of fellowship, or gearing up for a large event to help support the ministry….we are indeed ALIVE and DOING WELL!!!! There is a calendar on our website that charts our course for the year.
