$1,888 Goal

We are a youth-founded and minority woman-founded 501c3 grassroots community service organization that serves our unsheltered communities as well as our marginalized and vulnerable populations and fills in the gaps for those in need. We have 4 core programs:

1. Neighbor Outreach: to provide mindful and direct assistance to those experiencing homelessness

2. Rainy Day Program: to fill in the gaps for small but urgent needs such as an overdue utility bill, groceries, etc.

3. Holiday Outreach: to bring light into the holiday season for children, seniors, and our unsheltered communities

4. UMU Youth Academy: to bring equitable access to sports, arts, and music to underserved area youth

Mission Statement

“If you never had to stand up to something – to get up, to be knocked down, and to get up again – life can walk over you wearing football cleats. But each time you do get up, you’re bigger, taller, finer, more beautiful, more kind, more understanding, more loving. Each time you get up, you’re more inclusive. More people can stand under your umbrella.”

– Maya Angelou

We believe that through struggles comes strength and responsibility. When we overcome those struggles, we come out stronger than before and it is that strength that gives us the umbrella we can then hold for others.


We are in desperate need of an on-site temperature controlled storage unit for donations which will be our main fundraising focus so that we can help more people in need and store off-season donations such as coats and hoodies. We are also fundraising for equipment needs to better serve our unsheltered neighbors such as hot boxes to keep foods hot during the colder months. Our Amazon Wishlist and Walmart SparkGoods registry also has essential needs such as socks, snacks, bath wipes, and other items that can bring a little hope and a lot of dignity to those experiencing homelessness.

Equity Statement

We believe that our diversity gives us strength and inclusivity empowers our community. We serve anyone in need with dignity and without judgement.
