2016 Year of the Mothers

ptitle

No longer homeless, No longer helpless.

Forty-four mothers looked crisis in the eye and found no escape. Their determination to face up to what each had to do rested entirely with her. One hundred and fifteen children hung in the balance and every one of them came through because of their moms’ will to thrive and survive. This happened at Reynolds Home in 2015.

It is happening now.

El Paso has the highest number of domestic violence incidents per capita than any other county in Texas. Violence is the crisis. Mothers and children, the victims. Reynolds Home MOMS are the victors. They survive and thrive because we take the crisis and the moms seriously. And they respond by taking control of their lives, getting full-time jobs, saving their money, becoming independent and capable of an active, productive life. In 2016 we honor real heroes… women that despite tough circumstances daily strive for a better life for themselves and their children.

Cars and Kids Charity Meet held on March 26

April is the month of the child and what better way to celebrate than with a peek at our youngest residents in the home and all the fun activities they get to engage in. At the Cars and Kids Charity Meet held on March 26, kids got to hit a bunny piñata while parents got to check out some classic wheels. The girls got pampered by getting their nails painted. The kids also enjoyed an array of temporary tattoos, from pirates and Spiderman to hearts and butterflies. Face-painting was also a popular activity. This cutie was overjoyed to celebrate her 2nd birthday with a princess cake. But most of all, there were lots and lots of smiles! Did you know that families in shelters comprise 47% of persons who are homeless and over 70% of these are children? If you believe, like we do at Reynolds Home, that childhood memories…

Starting Over: Meet Esmeralda

Starting Over: Meet Esmeralda When Esmeralda moved to El Paso, she was in search of a fresh start. She had finally decided to leave her husband for good and was determined to give her 4 young children a better life. For two years, all was going well.

He gave 30 days to move out, but without a home to provide childcare anymore, Esme was left with no income to support her family. Her emergency fund was quickly depleting as Esme desperately looked for a place that could house her and her children. Finally, in…
