FAMILY OUTREACH PROGRAM
WE ARE HERE TO HELP
Family Outreach Program
Local individuals and families are encouraged to “adopt” a family in need during the holidays. Through this program, families who are in need of resources are provided with gifts, food, etc.
Leading up to the holiday season, we collect toys, gifts, and food items to create gift baskets for families in the area that are finding it financially difficult to celebrate the holidays.
Marinelly Cruz, Executive Director of God’s Vision Foundation, says, “The Easter Baskets will brighten the holiday for those children staying at shelters around the city. We can’t believe that this is the 1st year that God’s Vision Foundation have been collecting Easter Baskets. We are so appreciative of your support!”
Cellophane wrapped Easter baskets can be filled with items for children ages 1 to 17 and can include toys, journals, games, personal care items, gift cards, packaged healthy snacks and traditional Easter candy. Please contact Marinelly Cruz at 216-512-1463 if your school or organization is interested in contributing to the God’s Vision Foundation Easter Basket Drive.

In the winter months, YES maintains a food pantry stocked with non-perishable items and at times fresh meat and produce. This is made possible through the generosity of donations from community members and local foundations.
The Free Hygiene and Cleaning Supplies program is an initiative by Gods Vision Foundation that provides essential hygiene and cleaning supplies to families in need. Non-everyday use hygiene items like toothpaste, toothbrushes, deodorants, shampoos, soaps, and lotions are provided every 90 days to ensure families have a steady supply of essentials. Cleaning supplies like laundry detergent, dish soap, and cleaning sprays are also provided to help families keep their homes clean and healthy.
