We want to thank the following individuals, organizations and companies for their generous contributions, donations and "in-kind" services to INCITE A Single Moms Support Group. We could not have launched and continue to offer the much needed programs and services to single moms and their children in our community without the time and support of the following individuals and organizations:
"INCITE is an organization that assists single moms and their children by providing support, encouragement and inspiration. They offer direction, solutions, awareness and opportunities for empowerment. The vast majority of people that Saint Vincent de Paul at St. Paul the Apostle Parish assists are single moms. We at Saint Vincent de Paul are able to help in a material way with food and/or perhaps some assistance with bills. Beth and her organization offer much more. Beth is a single mom with a child herself. She has been through the despair, stress and low self-esteem. She and her volunteers offer empathy, compassion and support. They offer sustaining help with opportunities every week for mothers and young children to come in and meet and network with others, to talk openly, to share and learn, to participate, and even to try to have some fun. There is a huge need for this uplifting and sustaining support offered by INCITE. We at Saint Vincent de Paul, the Apostle Parish are able to offer emergency material help to individuals in crises today. INCITE offers material, emotional and spiritual help tomorrow, next week, next month for these single moms and their children."
"I am very happy to have read about this fantastic initiative;. You are beginning to meet a very real need in our community. I wish you only the best as you plan and fundraise and work to see your goals accomplished."
"This is an amazing article that the newspaper did in support of your new INCITE group, Beth! I am hoping and praying that someone will donate and support a space for you and your women, free of charge, to help get you started...a church, the YMCA, a community club organization? There are kind souls out there who will step up to the plate here to assist you...you are of true spirit, Beth. And what a fine example you are setting for your beautiful young daughter! All the best!"
"What a wonderful help to single moms and long overdue. As one of the original Single Moms (1991) who worked two jobs, did it all and was constantly overwhelmed by the responsibility. I was pre-computers, cell phones and any real type of government programs or assistance. I just always worked and felt very lonely and that is the best thing I can foresee about Incite-what a great connection to so no one has to go it alone."
