The IRIS board and volunteers coordinate the purchase and transportation of needed items to families. IRIS is staffed entirely by unpaid volunteers.
Single Mother of Three in Need of Support
IRIS was informed of a single mother who is sleeping on the floor of a small room that she is renting with her three children. The family is sleeping on the floor with only a few blankets. They are cold at night. The IRIS team is quickly responding to provide them with an air mattress and some warm blankets, however the needs of this family go far beyond bedding. The mother is working on average 50 hours per week to support her children but is still unable to meet their basic needs. Please make a donation to help this family.
Ongoing Support to Previously Homeless Family
After learning in November that an asylum seeking family from South America was homeless, IRIS quickly provided food, clothing and other basic items and secured stable housing for them. IRIS is supplementing their rent on a monthly basis and also continues to provide food and other basic items as needed.
Please donate to these families so that IRIS can support them to meet their basic needs. Any amount will make a difference.
