July 27th, 2022 - “I have met many, many farmworkers and friends who love justice and who are willing to sacrifice for what is right. They have a quality about them that reminds me of the beatitudes. They are living examples that Jesus’ promise is true: they have been hungry and thirsty for righteousness and they have been satisfied. They are determined, patient people who believe in life and who give strength to others.” - Cesar Chavez August 6th is Farmworker Appreciation Day! The work of agricultural labors often goes unnoticed and unappreciated. This sadly manifests in worker exploitation at its worst or failure to patronize local farmers at its most benevolent. In a world where so many are unable to access proper nutrition, we here at SHARE want to take a moment to thank farmworkers across the world who provide for their people. And of course, we want to spotlight a couple nonprofits we are partnered with who deal in farm work and education or do their part to decrease food waste so more people...
July 27th, 2022 - “That’s the point I really want to drive home about sex trafficking. The most important part to saving victims is realizing how many different ways we could have done something before as anything as horrific as to what happened to me happens to me someone else.” – Jose Alfaro, survivor of sex trafficking, quoted in The Polaris Project     In 2013, the United Nations declared July 30th the World Day Against Trafficking in Persons in order to raise awareness of the issue and reaffirm the responsibility each state has to prevent trafficking and support victims. Human trafficking refers to the forced or coerced movement of peoples for the purpose of exploitation, usually in the form of labor or sex. Anyone can fall victim to trafficking, but according to the UN, 65% of victims are women and girls and 35% are men and boys. Children make up 1/3 of all trafficking victims. Human trafficking is a global issue. According to the U.S. Department of State, there are 24.9 million...
July 22nd, 2022 - Sunday morning I had the opportunity to meet a special individual that survived a harsh ‘lifequake’ moment when she was a teenager. Life often throws many unexpected realities at us and often tests our spirit and perseverance to make life purposeful. Tyra Moore was a teenage mom at 15. She was terrified to tell her mom and gave birth to her daughter the same week she finally broke the news. After the shock wore off, support came from all of her family, friends, and community, providing essential baby needs at a critical time. After graduating high school, Tyra attended a phlebotomy training center and then began working. She promised herself that one day she would pay it forward by helping young teenage moms like herself get through those tough times. Tyra started a nonprofit in June of 2020 and called it ‘A Girl Like Me, Inc.’ and now devotes all her time to helping girls, teens, and teen moms. I met Tyra Sunday through an introduction from my friend Janette Phillips of...
July 5th, 2022 - Starting July 1, 2022, we're beginning a new chapter with a brand new name. No longer will we be known as the Coalition On Temporary Shelter. We're now officially: COTS. We've come a long way from our 1982 start as a coalition of parties focused mainly on homeless single men. COTS is now an independent organization that supports families seeking housing stability, whole-spectrum health, career development and so much more through our Passport To Self-Sufficiency™ framework. In 2021 alone, COTS assisted 462 families as they set meaningful goals and took advantage of coaching to achieve them. Sixty percent of individuals participating in COTS programs are children. Programs like our Bright Beginnings early head start education established with our partners Ilitch Children’s Charities and Say Detroit as well as COTS’ new Family Development Program emphasizing whole-family services interrupting generational poverty supported by our partner, the W.K. Kellogg Foundation are just a few of...
