|And the winner is…||The votes have been counted and we are proud to announce the 2015-2016 Chicks for Charity organization will be Mom’s House! A big thank you to the other two fantastic charities, Family House and Food for Thought – we are so happy you shared your stories with us. You are truly doing great work for our community!
|Mom’s House||Mom’s House is our 2015-2016 recipient! Mom’s House Toledo was established in 1993 by Nancy Nudo – along with a faithful group of volunteers, generous donors and community partners, including St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center, Mercy Hospital, area churches and generous individuals. Mom’s House was formed to offer an alternative to a life of poverty and lack of education for young parents who have dropped out of school and are participating in the welfare system. The cycle of teenage pregnancy and at-risk behaviors remains constant in the lives of young women, unless a stabilizing force moves in. Mom’s House was formed to be the stabilizing force to bring long-term, sustainable change into the lives of these women and their families.|
