Help Cornerstones address transportation barriers that prevent single mothers from achieving their dreams. This Mother’s Day, give a gift that provides opportunity and stability to our most vulnerable community members. Each year, Cornerstones provides “wrap-around” support services to those in need in order to help them obtain or maintain financial security as they journey toward a more stable life.
Your donation of a gas, SmarTrip or Uber gift card provides a family or individual with the ability to get to a better paying job, to attend doctor’s appointments, and to navigate multiple, daily transportation challenges that can become barriers to stable employment and livelihood.
You’re a single mom. It’s 11:00 p.m. and you’re just getting off of work. You walk to the bus stop to wait on the last bus, hoping that it didn’t come a few minutes early. If it has, you’ll have to use the last few dollars on your debit card to catch an Uber, first to pick up your baby from the caregiver and then to get home. Money for an Uber tonight, means you will have to go without something you will need tomorrow. You know you’ll manage by skipping a few meals and doctor’s appointments so that her child is not impacted.
Mothers often make extraordinary sacrifices for their children.
For mothers struggling to make ends meet, transportation challenges represent one of the most costly and frustrating barriers to a better way of life. But with your help, Cornerstones and Cornerstones’ Care Managers will help our community members in need navigate transportation challenges with confidence so that they can seek opportunities that will enable them to achieve success and help them reach their life goals.
