Here at Flatland, we want to offer a gentle reminder that the holidays are a season of giving, not just receiving. So our gift to you is a daily list of sometimes-obscure local charitable organizations that could use your help. From Dec. 24 to Jan. 1, we are providing brief descriptions of deserving charities and information about how you can contribute. We know there are many wonderful local charities, so we’re also providing a list of organizations featured this year on 90.9 The Bridge’s “Give Back Friday” segments. Our hope is that the “Season of Giving” feature becomes something of a holiday tradition here at Flatland, because there are so many groups that deserve the attention, and community needs never end.
Since being established in 1987, more than 1,700 pregnant young women and babies have been helped with this program. Mother’s Refuge is located in Independence, Missouri, and provides shelter, education, medical care and community support to homeless, pregnant young women or young mothers and their babies. They even help mothers after they graduate from their program with continued emotional support. The program is led by an all-women, qualified staff.
