Dear Fellow Investor,

Join me as I chat with Tara Nierenhausen the Founder and Executive Director of Community’s Child.

A home and program to help homeless women with infants in the South Bay Area of Los Angeles.

Founded in 2005 they celebrated 15 years of service in 2020. Probably the year that they saw most need for their services and saw their business explode.

Not only are they housing these mothers and their children, they also:

Run the Hope Community Center for Disadvantaged Families, the Healthy Bags Children’s and families nutritional services

And the parenting education and pre-vocational services.

As one resident told me back in 2018 the program to get these families on their feet, graduate from HS and some into college or certification and get a place of their own within 24 months and adhering to the rules is “no joke”.

Some stats that astounded me

12,025 volunteers putting in 58,086 hours serving 203,777 south bay families and 370,222 children in need.

With admin costs at around 7% of income they get a lot of bang from their buck which means their donors bucks go a long way.

Community’s Child during the height of the Pandemic, serve

11,167 South Bay Households with 37,095 Individuals.

Additionally, they became the produce hub for 20 other South Bay food Pantries, sharing 14, 000 to 18,000 pounds of produce every week. Together, with those groups, they served an additional 10,000 food insecure residents.

How do they get this done with just 5 paid staff?

Come find out how and learn from Tara what you can do in your small way to make your community better, or replicate this service in your community, and if you are a non-profit what she found to be the key to success.

Since my client appreciation parties have an entrance fee of “at least one food item” in support of Community’s Child I wanted to share who they are and have Tara tell the story
