With a focus on Education, Highbanks creates opportunities for single moms and their children by providing housing, a community and skill development. This is how we are working every day to break the cycle of poverty, homelessness, and abuse in this vulnerable population.
All residents must be enrolled in formal education and participate in Highbanks programs focused on Parenting Education - because being a good parent is a tough job; Trauma Therapy – to help moms deal with systematic abuse and toxic stress; and core Life Skills – such as cooking, healthy relationships, financial literacy, and goal setting.
For the past 15 years we have owned our own building and have two wonderful commercial tenants, Dairy Lane and Velvet Style, who's lease covers 20% of our necessary overhead. Highbanks Society does not currently receive any government funding. We are only able to do this great work and provide a better life for families through the generous donations and support of our wonderful partners, and people like you.
SO WE NEED YOUR HELP!
You can help us support young families in our community and provide them with a warm, safe and secure home this holiday season and in the new year! This holiday season, we are aiming to raise $15,000 to us provide everything these young families need to thrive with our Light Up Our Tree campaign.
