While extremely rewarding, being a parent is no easy task, especially if you’re a good one. Our Extra-Ordinary Moms (EOM) program recognizes homeless moms who are utilizing resources and doing their best in raising their children; as we look ahead to Father’s Day this week, we thought it would be nice to acknowledge a dad that really rocks.

Not long ago I ran into a friend (Founder/Executive Director of Extra-Ordinary Birthdays), and she asked what I’ve been doing. I said I’ve been quilting. I pulled out my device and showed her a few pictures. Anyone who knows Schinnell knows what I mean when I say “you could see the wheels turning.” She said in so many words… a quilt is just what her Extra-Ordinary Moms (EOM) need. I could not have agreed with her more.

We believe in the power of a birthday. You’ve probably heard us say that and read it in our social media postings and on our website. Birthdays are powerful reminders to children that they are valued, and birthdays are opportunities for families to strengthen their bond while creating memories together, despite being homeless.
