Why Address Basic Needs?
Can you imagine not having enough food in the kitchen to eat dinner tonight? What if you couldn’t go to school tomorrow morning because you didn’t have a clean pair of underwear? What if other kids made fun of you for having stinky breath… because you had run out of toothpaste?
The Foundation of our Five Pillars
- Staff and volunteers deliver boxes or bags of groceries weekly to our youth and their families.
- As needed, hygiene products are included in the weekly deliveries.
- Healthy snacks and hot meals are served five days a week to all youth attending the education program.
Testimonial: Pendergrass family
“I love Water Walkers. You all are always thinking about our children and try to give them everything they need. I have never heard of a program that will pick your children up, feed them, mentor them, tutor them and then provide food boxes for the children and our entire family. You all even provide group counseling for our babies and Lord knows they need to talk about some of the things they see in these housing projects. Keep up the needed work and thank you for the weekly food boxes!”
