Make an investment in a healthier community:

"Right now, my mother is working two jobs in nursing homes. She works 16-hour days to help us make ends meet. My father recently lost his job when the company he had been with for four years closed down and is back at Lao Family which is helping him to find work. Lao Family has helped us so much in the past that he knows he can go back to them and that they will help him with whatever he needs." Ashlee Mooloko
