My Family's Village provides support and assistance to parents struggling with parenting and self-care, including caring for their children or their child’s development while caring for themselves in the process.
Through the work of My Family's Village, there will be an increasing number of families staying together and raising children in an atmosphere of love and support, resulting in more success in life.
My Family's Village was born to provide parents with the resources they need to become better parents and improve their family’s quality of life. Based on the personal experiences of our founder and team, Family’s Village provides financial, educational, physical, and mental support to parents in Hammond, Indiana, who lack the resources and knowledge to take care of their kids and, most importantly, to take care of themselves.
My Family’s Village serves the seventy-six thousand nine hundred eighty-four residents of Hammond, Indiana.
Approximately 27% of households in the Hammond area are led by single mothers.
Lake county has only 1.8 physician offices per 100,000 people that provide mental health services.
53% of the population in Hammon earns less than $50,000 annually, and 21% live below the poverty line, which is nearly double the rates at both the state and national levels.
Our long-term goal is for My Family’s Village to become a caregiver resource center for all the families in the Hammond, Indiana, community. In the next 3 years, we will build our resource center to host our school and daycare, social services center, and space for our community to enjoy and grow.
