We transform our lives and the lives of others through empathy and action.


Many of Quincy's most vulnerable women, children and particularly, elderly men, are suffering unbearably from poverty, homelessness, and predatory actions of those who take advantage of them every single day. They need assistance, especially affordable housing. I cannot achieve these goals alone. Find out how you can help.
