Mothers and children living at Metropolitan Ministries arrive broken and alone. Many survived domestic violence, dangerous living environments, or unimaginable circumstances and trauma that are too hard to share. Even essentials like diapers and baby formula are out of reach for these families in crisis.
However, you can be hope for moms like Angelese.
Angelese found refuge at Metropolitan Ministries’ just a few weeks ago and feels incredibility grateful for the support she is receiving for her and her newborn.
“I’m afraid to think what would’ve happened to us if we weren’t here,” she said. Now that Angelese is safe, she can focus on being the parent she never had and achieving her educational goals.
Help bring hope to Angelese and hundreds of other moms at Metropolitan Ministries just in time for Mother’s Day. Each month, the organization uses as many as 10,000 diapers across at two campuses and with hundreds of families receiving aid across Tampa Bay through the Metro Brigaide’s mobile outreach and community-based programs.
Donate to a baby supply drive near you or host a donation drive at your school or office.
