I decided to name my first organization after my mom “Cora” because she is a very loving a caring person, always helping others, with whatever she may have, she taught my siblings and I at a very early age that to always great people with love and to be generous and kind.
Those early stages of moral code and character shaped who I am today. The teaching and wisdom my mom instilled in me provided the foundation for who I am at the core. I care about people and helping those in need. The family is the core of anything significant, in my opinion, and I have to protect that and let people know that it is okay when you fall on hard times. I know I've been there! It's not the details of the challenges my family and I have faced that I remember most, it's the people who showed up for me who cared and loved on my family and me when we needed it most. I cherish and remember the hands that reached out to help. Cora's Helping Hands exist to help one family, one community, one day at a time.
