Up for Women and Children

Serving Homeless Women and Children

Our Mission is to provide a healthy, safe environment for homeless women and children that offers opportunities and encouragement for achieving self-sufficiency. By providing shelter and resource options through a partnership of providers, UP for Women and Children is where homeless women are empowered to find hope, help, and refuge.

Our model is simple – partner with anyone and everyone who can help to address the issue of family homelessness: congregations, individuals, cities and counties, and businesses of all sizes. We hope you will join us!

Our Vision is to ensure safety for single women as well as parenting women and their dependent children who are experiencing homelessness by providing a safe, reliable, and supportive space that offers comprehensive services. By working with additional service providers, we adequately link women, children, and families to vital supports that they need to be empowered.

Comfort Covers

Comfort Cover is a dedicated volunteer group that joins together on a weekly basis to make no-sew fleece blankets for Norton Suburban Hospital cancer patients. These blankets are given to oncology, surgical, and pediatric day surgery patients, and the chaplains give them to patients or families of patients that could use a little extra comfort and love. Additionally, the Comfort Cover group makes “angel” blankets. These special blankets are used to wrap infants that do not make it to term or are stillborn. The angel blankets are lovingly designed as two blankets tied together with ribbon so that when the time comes, the mother is able to keep part of the blanket while leaving the other part with the infant.

As a growing ministry, Comfort Cover is looking for new members who feel God calling them to provide comfort to the sick. No special talents are needed – just a desire to touch someone’s life with love.
