"Being a lifelong resident of this area, the miracles and efficiency by which MOM has been able to have an amazing impact on so many people, so many families, so many children, and so many other people needing assistance- it has been extremely humbling to bear witness to, and I doubt the significance of the miracles that happen at MOM are known by as many people as should know."

"I think about how I feel and how my kids feel (ornery, cranky, not at our best!) when they are hungry and I think, 'what if we had to live like that every day?'."
