Doing Good Things

We suprised a dozen lovely ladies for Valentine's Day at Emily's Place in Plano.
What Emily's Place is all about
Emily’s Place seeks to break the cycle of domestic violence for women and their children by providing "transformational" living with emphasis on emotional healing and life-skills training to ensure a successful, self-sustaining future.
Emily’s Place is not a shelter, which typical allows women to stay for 30-90 days. Rather, it is a “transformational” housing ministry based on a 24-month stay commitment which promotes stability and wise choices.
The transformational program includes counseling, addictions recovery, vocational assistance, life skills development and spiritual nurturing--all within a structured environment of 24/7 live-in staff who are dedicated to offering the support and accountability needed to transition from a difficult past into a bright future.
For victims of domestic violence, Emily’s Place is the BRIDGE from the shelter back into the community.
As the only long-term transitional housing facility for domestic violence survivors in Collin County, Emily's Place served 26 women and children last year – maintaining full capacity based on available facilities. However, Emily’s Place received 700+ referrals in 2012 (2.5 times more than 2011) from local churches, government service agencies and short-term women’s shelters.

Adopt-A-Mom, Mother's Day 2013
Mothers Day 2013 Frisco Moms came together to honor mothers by gifting them a special Mother’s Day gift. One Hundred mothers bought one hundred gift baskets from Bath & Body works in Frisco and delivered the baskets to Childrens Medical Center Dallas Campus and the Children’s Medical Center Plano Campus. We did this to show our love and support to mothers whose children were in the hospital as long term patients. We chose to have all the mothers of the pediatric cardiology patients receive these gifts. The pediatric cardio unit is home to children from newborn to teens, some awaiting open heart surgery, some awaiting a heart transplant, all of which have a mother or loved one standing stead fast at their post providing the love and care these little ones need.
Oklahoma Tornado Relief Effort
The tornadoes were so devastating to the Oklahoma area so Frisco Moms decided to do what we could! Cube Smart on Frisco Street donated a storage unit to us and moms from all over Frisco dropped off whatever they could to help clean up efforts and to help resupply families with necessities. Sometimes "Frisco Moms"have to call on the Frisco Daddies & Frisco Kids to help with the grunt work. Luckily they enjoy stepping up and getting the job done!

Valentine's Day Surprise
We surprised a local mom and her 2 year old daughter for Valentine's Day. Each year we like to find a special sweetheart to spoil. This year we had two! This local mom lost her husband just a few months ago and we wanted to make sure they felt loved. We had a fun time picking things for mommy AND daughter and secretly gathering the things and dropping them off! We got 'em good! They were surprised and the ole warm fuzzy meter lit up for both them AND us!
