Our mission is to empower those who face challenges including struggling veterans, youth who have aged out or are aging out of foster care, and homeless and abandoned teens by providing them with support and resources to overcome the obstacles they face. We are dedicated to helping them secure stable housing, education, transportation, job placement, and financial support, ultimately helping them achieve independence and success through access to a stable home, consistent meals, reliable transportation, and a secure job.
Many circumstances, mostly to no fault of their own, find our youth, young adults, and veterans struggling for food, shelter, a job, transportation and even the basic education. Most of the time these issues can be resolved through kindness and caring. A simple internet search will reveal stunning statistics of how communities are struggling with homelessness, food deprivation, the failure of the education system, unemployment and more. It’s harder to digest that while the numbers are growing, the ages of those affected are younger and younger. Even some of veterans are struggling to navigate their options when they enter the civilian world. Often times they give up and find themselves with some of these same challenges. A Whole Lotta Kindness goes a long way as we help navigate through these challenges with these young adults and veterans. Through our efforts, we have found that most just need the basics. Once housing is secured, utilities need to be turned on, then home essentials are needed, then groceries are needed. Job hunting requires a good resume and interview clothing. Securing a job is a success and then it’s met with the challenge of getting to and from work. So we step with A Whole Lotta Kindness with a path to success.
As strong proponents of “knowledge is power,” A Whole Lotta Kindness continues to help everyone who has the desire to get an education get one. Most of our young adults don’t even have a high school diploma and therefore need help registering for classes, more often then not they need tutoring, and are deterred due to their lack of having the needed supplies like a laptop computer. We fill all the gaps that discourage anyone from going to school. We not only assist in getting in school, we closely navigate the journey through graduation. We help with applications, admissions, registration, class scheduling, and anything else that may come up while attending school. We assist in obtaining a high school diploma, GED Certificate, college degrees, certificates, specialty schools, and more.
