THANK YOU 2020 DONORS
2020 was an unprecedented year and MTF is grateful to our faithful supporters, partners and volunteers during this pandemic. YOU eased the unsurmountable challenges of Covid times for so many families in need throughout our Lake County community. Thank you for keeping kids safe in their homes with rent and utilities assistance and contributing toward remote learning, clothing, baby gear, medical expenses and so much more.
OUR SERVICE STORIES TELL IT BEST!
UTILITIES
A single mother of 4 children had her hours as a daycare worker severely reduced due to COVID-19 restrictions at the start of the pandemic. Her husband left her earlier in the year and provides no support for the family. She is struggling to pay their bills and is afraid that her electricity will be shut off, which will be devastating for her children now required to learn at home. MTF paid the ComEd bill for the family, keeping the electricity on and the children from falling behind academically.
MENTAL HEALTH
After being in the foster care system for most of his life, a 17-year-old boy has finally found his forever family with a stable place to call home. His foster family has 4 other children and money is tight. The boy struggles with past trauma and is having difficulty adjusting to his new environment. MTF provided funding for the 10 counseling sessions his case worker requested to assist his transition and ensure a better future for this youth.
