Frisco Moms Care aims to engage women to support and lift one another for the betterment of our community. Through the below programs, we create opportunities for women to care for each other by supplementing and/or filling gaps in community funding for families in need through financial assistance, clothing, housewares, meals, and other special support.
Our Community Projects
Valentine's Sweetheart Project
Local mothers who have been recently widowed or lost a child are nominated by community members and adopted as our “Valentine.” We assemble and personally deliver baskets of gifts and services that we hope remind them they are loved.
In an effort to spread the feeling of community love, we deliver blankets and notes of support to women and children in a time of personal struggle or crisis. Material is purchased by FMC, and blankets are made by the mother of one of FMC’s founding members.
Healthcare Appreciation Project
Care packages filled with snacks and various goodies are assembled by our team and delivered to healthcare professionals in the community.
Mother's Day Project
Gift baskets of comfort items are delivered to mothers of patients in local pediatric cardiac units, pediatric intensive care units, and neonatal intensive care units on Mother's Day.
Teacher Appreciation Project
During the spring, packages filled with snacks and extra school supplies are assembled and delivered to teachers in several Title I schools in Little Elm ISD and Frisco ISD.
Sister Moms Program
The Sister Moms Program is a part of Frisco Moms Care that serves struggling families in the cities of Frisco, Little Elm, or those that fall within the FISD or LEISD boundaries. We have a dedicated team of volunteers serving as Case Managers to serve income-eligible families. When a family starts with the Sister Moms Program, they are assigned to a case manager who serves as their main point of contact, provides general support, and checks in with them at least monthly.
A majority of our annual budget and projects directly benefit the families enrolled in our Sister Moms Program. If a financial need arises that falls outside of our projects, such as help with bills or purchasing a new car seat for a growing child, we are able to assist them through our Helping Hands Fund, as long as funds allow. This is an annually renewing budgeted benefit that recipient families can utilize on an emergency basis.
Personal Care Packages
Twice a year, personal care baskets are provided to each family served by the Sister Moms Program. Baskets include personal hygiene items as well as household cleaning supplies. These are items not covered by their SNAP benefits and are highly anticipated each cycle.
Through a partnership with local non-profit, Trusted World, we are able to provide quality gently used clothing to adults and children. While clothing is
Each school-age qualifying child my request to receive a new backpack and new pair of shoes prior to the start of the new school year.
Winter Coat Project
Every year, before the first cold spell hits, new winter coats are purchased for and provided to qualifying children. Gently used coats are also provided to adults upon request. This is in addition to the gently used jackets/ coats that are provided by our partner Trusted World by request.
Thanksgiving Meal Project
At the start of the Thanksgiving school break, we provide each family served by the Sister Moms Program with a large box of groceries to use for a “traditional” Thanksgiving meal, a turkey, and supplemental grocery items to support an additional 3-5 days’ worth of food while children are home for the week.
Holiday Meal Project
At the start of the Winter Holidays school break, we provide each family served by the Sister Moms Program with a large box of groceries to use for a “traditional” Holiday meal, a turkey or ham, and supplemental grocery items to support an additional week’s worth of food while children are home for the week.
Holiday Gifts Project
Qualifying families may shop for holiday gifts for their children. These gifts are provided by gracious FMC volunteers, supporters, and businesses in the community who wish to be involved. Unwrapped gifts are given to the parent of these children so that they can gift the children themselves on their respective holidays.
