SUMMER 2020
There's a lot going on at MTF this summer
and we want to share our news with you!
Making a Difference...One child at a time.
Service Meetings have resumed
via Zoom! And you're invited!
On July 15, we resumed our Wednesday Service Meetings after staff reviewed all requests as emergencies during the stay-at-home order. Please let us know if you would like to join us on a Wednesday at 9:30 a.m. All are welcome!

Working together to keep families safely in their homes during COVID
Mothers Trust Foundation partners with many social service agencies to maximize our impact. Beacon Place is one of our many service partners. Rosa tells how MTF grants have made a difference in the lives of BP families.

MTF has received emergency COVID grants from United Way Lake County,
The Church of the Holy Spirit, The Highland Park Community Foundation, First Presbyterian Church Lake Forest and the Trustmark Foundation, as well as individual donations from so many!
Your donations at work changing lives
Housing Stability grants and
Safe Baby Gear are the top funding categories this summer
  • 92 families (210 children) have received housing stability grants for rent or utility assistance

  • 179 children received a car seat, pack-and-play crib or other safe baby item


Camp requests are down but still making a world of difference!

"We would like to thank you for funding my son's summer camp program. Your support has made a world of difference to us. Thank you for your willingness to serve
and blessings to you!"

Our Service Stories tell it best...

  • A family of 5. The father has been out of work since March due to COVID and hopes to go back soon. The family has used all of their savings. One daughter broke her glasses and the girls have outgrown their clothes. MTF paid their utility bills, provided funding for glasses as well as a voucher to the Salvation Army for clothing.

  •  A single father of 2 teenage daughters. Their mother walked out of their lives 18-months ago. The father was laid off from his job at a restaurant because of COVID. MTF paid the family's ComEd bill as well as for counselling sessions for the oldest daughter who has been battling depression since her mother left.

  • A grandmother who has been homeless for months received a Lake County housing voucher but needed help paying the security deposit. She has guardianship of her 14-year-old grandson since her daughter, the boy's mother, recently died. MTF paid the balance of the security deposit for their new home.
