Sponsor a Bride Program:
Marriage of man and woman is an incredible feat and deserves to be celebrated. However, there is never a perfect time for a wedding. Between job loss, medical bills, deployment, debt, and a host of other reasons, we often have clients that are struggling to be able to afford their special celebration. It is our mission to help educate and find affordable resources to alleviate some of this burden, thus allowing the couple to focus more on their new marriage and building a stable family. The Sponsor a Bride Program gives donors the opportunity to make dreams come true. These funds are awarded to couples at our discretion to help them with other expenses such as: venue, food, attire, décor, etc. We offer the choice of designating your donation to a specific category of couple such as but not limited to:
Military/Veteran Couple: One or both individuals are active in the military or a veteran. Oftentimes these couples are forced to quickly change their wedding date due to deployment. Oftentimes couples are left scrambling to put together their special day without ability to save and plan over a period of time.
Education Couple: One of both individuals work in the education system. These individuals oftentimes are using their own finances to pay for supplies or materials needed in their classroom, leaving the budget for a wedding rather minimal.
Medical Field Couple: One or both individuals work in the medical field such as a nurse, CNA, DSP etc.
Student Couple: One or both individuals are currently enrolled in college, trade school, continuing education etc. Oftentimes these couples are paying off student loans while attempting to finish school and work.
Emergency Couple: One or both individuals are affected by a family emergency such as illness, which results in the wedding date being moved up. This decreases the amount of time the couple has to save and plan for their special day.
Ready and Abled Program:
This program is designed to provide internship/employment opportunities for individuals with a developmental disability. With the assistance of an experienced job coach on site, individuals can gain valuable work skills and experience, as well as provide them with a reputable reference as they build their resume. Designed to encourage independence, the Ready and Abled program also offers support and training when needed. This program strives to promote inclusiveness in the workforce as well as establishing pride and purpose in being a valued member of society.
