Karen And Charles Phillips Charitable Organizations Award Six Grants To Single Mothers

NEW YORK, Nov. 30, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Phillips Charitable Organizations awarded six additional grants to single mothers  in recent weeks.  As costs increase for education and child care and rents begin to rise again in some markets, single parents can be financially challenged.  Structural shifts in the economy have made transition to the next job more challenging than expected those seeking employment. . Moreover, most of the grantees have been unsuccessful in securing the child support they were legally awarded.

Karen and Charles Phillips Charitable Organizations is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit foundation providing financial help for single parents and other specific constituencies. PCO has awarded over 100 grants in the last two years

RECENT GRANTEES:

Air Force Veteran and Single Mother With Another Child on the Way

Porshia McKinley is a single mother and expecting another child soon with no child care and unable to secure child support payments.   Her pregnancy has been complicated by medical challenges which added to this difficult scenario.   She is also an Air Force veteran. 

Ms. McKinley read about Phillips Charitable Organizations and explained her circumstance and provided documentation and received a grant within the week.

Two Single Mothers with Lupus

Cheryl Smith has Lupus/Sjogrens Disorder which has caused her to become legally blind in one eye.  This severe condition led to her losing her job at the Salvation Army where she had worked for her entire career.  The job loss led to eviction as she attempted to re-arrange her life.  The application process for social services is not always as fast and the need. Ms. Smith consulted Phillips Charitable Organizations for a bridge grant to sustain the family and arrange for an apartment to get her through the application process for social services.

Yolanda James of Connecticut is employed as a bus driver for 4 months but also battling Lupus.  A single mother of two, Ms. James was traveling nearly an hour to work and the fuel costs were overwhelming her financials and ability to care for her children.  Lupus disease had led to a need for hip replacement surgery and increased medication.

The Lupus Foundation of America suggested Ms. James contact Phillips Charitable to arrange financing to move to safer housing closer to her place of employment. PCO arranged a payment to the property management to effect Ms. James relocation.
