Holy Ground’s mission is to shelter and mentor homeless, pregnant and parenting young mothers and their children in Palm Beach County, who are willing to make positive changes in their lives. Our ultimate goal is to foster generational change that can break the cycle of homelessness, poverty and teen pregnancy. After addressing the basic needs of our clients, we focus on educational and vocational advancement and the acquisition of capacity-building life skills that can move these young families toward independence. This year our Great Give goal is to raise $10,000 to support the educational and vocational needs of the young moms we serve. Your contribution can help a young mom like GH. She attended high school but was unable to pass the required standardized test. While in Holy Ground’s program, GH was tutored, but was still unable to pass the test. Holy Ground provided the funds for extensive educational testing that revealed she had higher-than-average intelligence, but undiagnosed ADHD and dyslexia. After we secured specialized tutoring, tailored towards her learning disabilities, plus additional time to take the test, GH was able to pass the ACT with a score in the top 20% of the nation! She received her high school diploma and is now enrolled in Palm Beach State College, where she currently holds a B+ average. Her 6-year-old child was also recently placed in her elementary school’s gifted program. Support Holy Ground and help other young moms realize their potential!
