and build a stable family life for their babies.

Dear Donor,

When you donate to Samara’s Village, can you picture the kind of person whose life you are changing? A typical young mom in our program is someone who wants to step up, have her baby, and build a strong and healthy life for her child. But she has obstacles.

  • She has hardly any resources and doesn’t know how to care for a baby.
  • She needs baby supplies but can’t afford them.
  • She has dropped out of school but will still want and need to graduate to earn a living.
  • She may live in a remote area and not have adequate transportation.
  • She may need to find safe, affordable housing.
  • She worries about paying for day care when she’ll be able to get a job.
  • She needs a friend, a mentor, a teacher who can guide her through her baby’s first 3 years and show her how to get the help she needs.
  • She needs you to change her life.

At this time of greatest need for our young moms — and dads as well — we ask you to step up with us to keep our services going and growing. It takes more money every year because we keep adding participants. And you know about costs these days.

Brunswick County has more pregnant adolescents than we currently reach.
Can you help us reach them?

In the new year, we will be opening our first satellite location in Shallotte to provide services to those who have trouble getting to us in Southport. The site needs a lot of work first, but we are excited — hammers and paintbrushes in hand — about opening our doors to more young moms who really need our help.

Every little bit helps on the way to building strong families.

We are also starting to seriously address 3 critical needs. We have moms who have made great strides in our program but still face the persistent barriers of day care, transportation, and housing costs. Would you…

  • contribute to a child’s early care and education?
  • help pay for gas or car maintenance?
  • help with a young family’s rent or even help keep them from homelessness?

Your donation shows your trust in us and your commitment to our mission. Do you believe that it takes a village to equip, educate, and empower our young moms and dads? Will you continue to be part of our village? If so, we are immeasurably grateful. And you will be giving our families the priceless gift of hope.

Sincerely yours,

Debbie Keener, Executive Director
