MEN AND WOMEN OF VISION
MOVEN/WOVEN is a non-profit organization in Lowell, MA which serves the city of Lowell and nearby communities. Our main objective is community outreach, providing assistance to single parent and low income homes, and equipping them with the necessary tools and resources they need to help them spend more quality time with their children.
WOVEN/MOVEN Believes that:
Relationships do not just happen but they are pursued and produced through love and sincere affections. God has revealed His love to us through His Son, and it is our passion to share that love through genuine care and concern for others. The purpose of our WOVEN/MOVEN Ministry is to meet the spiritual, physical, and emotional needs of women, men and children within our community.
Our streets are not always the safest place for our children to hang out because they can end up being caught up in the gang violence that is already taking place. Most people have failed to identify the root of gang related crimes and activity and WOVEN/MOVEN seeks to find a solution to keep children away from it.
Not all parents have the privileges life offers allowing them to constantly socialize with their children, or spend time to raise their children. When asked, some parents say that they have to work long hours just to put food on the table for their children.
Modern technology has become the baby-sitter as children get to spend more time playing video games or watching TV. During the few hours that parents are home, they are either on the computer or on their smartphones and in return their children don’t get enough love and guidance from their own parents. When the children look for love in all the wrong places, there is always a stranger from the streets waiting to give neglected children the love and support they are seeking.
To alleviate this problem, Moven/Woven reaches out to single parents and low income families to help them with food handouts and other community based programs. We have reached out to so many families who have benefited from our program. Cooking classes are held for all interested parties to better utilize the food that we give them and we would like to see a great improvement on the lives of the disadvantaged in the communities that we serve.
We would also like to start a community center where disadvantaged children can spend more time learning different skills. Moven/Woven currently relies on fundraising events and charitable donations from well-wishers. Our organization can only achieve its goals with the assistance of generous donations from members of our community.
