Giving back to causes I care about is an important part of my life's work.
I donate 5% of my coaching income to these three charities. Each are close to my heart for different reasons.
The Family Pantry-Damien's Place The Family Pantry was opened by my late mother, Marie Hobbs, and in her retirement she worked there as a volunteer. Wareham, Massachusetts The mission of The Family Pantry-Damien's Place is to provide both perishable and non-perishable food to those in need so that no one goes to bed hungry. Founded in 1992 the Family Pantry-Damien's Place was started because of the needs of the poor in the greater Wareham/New Bedford area. Fr. Gabriel Healy and Fr. Tom McElroy began the pantry with the assistance of many volunteers, some of whom continue to serve at the Pantry.
N Street Village I loved living in Washington, DC and especially enjoyed the M Street neighborhood that I called home for several years. Helping women improve their lives is important to me. Washington, DC N Street Village empowers homeless and low-income women in Washington, DC to claim their highest quality of life by offering a broad spectrum of services, housing, and advocacy in an atmosphere of dignity and respect. They help women achieve stability and make meaningful gains in their housing, income, employment, mental health, physical health, and addiction recovery.
Community Caring Center Boynton Beach is now my home for most of the year. I am so grateful for the many blessings in my life and believe it's important to help people less fortunate than myself. Boynton Beach, Florida The Community Caring Center provides a unique approach to addressing root causes of poverty through an innovative integration of both social services programs, economic development (through small business incubation), nutrition education, and access to a healthy, affordable, and sustainable food center. Services include a food pantry, emergency shelter, financial assistance, referral services and advocacy.
