It Take’s A Village!

Tuesday, May 4, 2021


Come hear our special guest speaker, Vicky Joseph, founder of the local nonprofit organization, Families Helping Families! She will be speaking at the United Methodist Women General Zoom Meeting on Tuesday, May 4, at 9 a.m. Click here for Zoom details! 

For many years, Families Helping Families has been one of the organizations the UMW has funded as a mission.   Families Helping Families is a grass roots neighborhood organization started by Vicky in 1994 with the focus of helping families in DuPage County. Families Helping Families provides apartments and supportive services to homeless families while they are working to reclaim their lives. Vicky will speak about how she was motivated to begin her journey in helping to provide transitional housing for families in need. She will discuss the success stories of many of her families, who is eligible, what they receive, what services are provided, and what is needed for the FHF Supply Closet. Our United Methodist Women would like to collect toilet paper, paper towels, and quarters to help these families with their laundry. Be watching to learn where we will be putting our collections. You can begin to save now!  We hope you will join us on Zoom for our wonderful program and learn how we can continue to help the wonderful organization Families Helping Families! It takes a village!
