Ron and Krista Mainess are the founders behind Helping Our Families. From early on in their journey together they have opened their homes and hearts to family and friends needing a safe and stable environment to succeed. It seemed natural that the next step would be to create an organization where they could provide the same type of support and guidance to other single mothers.
Helping Our Families' primary purpose is to enable single mothers and their children to achieve stability by providing temporary housing (up to two years), educational resources and job-placement counseling through our relationships with local businesses. We offer a positive environment with established, effective programs that develop parent and child skills and support mothers spiritually, psychologically and emotionally as they work to meet the needs of their families.
