I have always had this burning desire to help others. I used to think that it was a curse. I am an “empath” as we would call it in the spiritual realm of things. What that means is that I am able to feel another persons pain and I wish that I can take it away. I am a “fixer.” I am always wanting to help others. Always. I used to fight it. Ignore it, but I would feel so bad. Finally, I learned to quit fighting it and just embrace it. I have to be careful though. Why? Being the type of person that I am is a gift and a curse. I have to use discretion and be very discerning. I have to be that way because you have some people out there that will take advantage of the type of spirit that I have.
The Single Parents Ministry Inc. has been around for the last 10 years. However, it didn’t officially become a 501 C3 Non-Profit Organization until December 2014. That was my Christmas Gift to myself. I had to do something with the feelings that I had to help others. Why not turn it into an official Non-Profit, that was recognizable, and that I would be able to obtain grants and funding for in order to help others.
We have given away everything from food, appliances, clothes, funding, toys, and so much more. Why? It is what we do. Our Mission Statement is, “Giving A Helping Hand To Others.” That is what we do and what we will continue to do. We have partnered with Chick-Fil-A and Toys For Tots. We will be doing so this year as well. We plan to take it further though. The goal is for this to be a well known Organization. Why? So we can help as many families as we can.
We won’t stop ever. It isn’t in my spirit to stop. I do this because I want to do so and continue to help others.
