Hope Station was founded to assist middle class single mothers who may not qualify for governmental assistance due to their income. Hope Station is a temporary crisis agency set up to provide a middle ground for the middle class mom by providing financial assistance for living expenses, utilities, gas etc.
Our founder’s story and the reason the Hope Station was formed.
“I am a single mother and I was on maternity leave after giving birth to my third child. I receive short term disability for the first 6 weeks; however there was an issue with the daycare and I was forced to take an additional 2 weeks off without pay. During these two weeks, I struggled financially with household bills, gas for my car and most of all providing for my children—mainly my newborn son. I reached out to WIC for milk for the baby only to be told my income was too high. I was not looking to be on this program forever, just until I returned back to work. I needed fifteen cans of milk, but I was turned away with no assistance—not even a resource or a referral to another agency, I left there feeling broken and helpless. I would like to prevent this from happening to any other mothers.”
