The Power of Mom, Mother’s Day event is a 100% community give-back.

In Urbana, Courage Connection will be receiving this year’s donations. Below are the details:

WHAT? Join us in collecting household items for women and their families in transitional housing. Items will be donated to Courage Connection her in Urbana

The ripple effect a mom has on her children most often comes through the REAL life experiences she gives them.

It is a way to share what it means to truly engage with your community and dedicate SERVICE to that community, so it becomes a way of life.

Change starts at home.
