Elise S.

Elise answered an ad for ExtraFood volunteers on NextDoor, and immediately took on the regular Wednesday evening Fairfax Community Farmers’ Market trip with her two daughters. They are much appreciated at Bennett House, a Mercy Housing California property, where the seniors look forward to their weekly delivery of fresh produce from this delightful mother-and-daughters team.

This amazing program offers long-term support, resources, guidance and training for children with incarcerated parents. Based on 16 years of direct experience, their year-round program is designed to meet the unique emotional needs of children of prisoners. They intervene early in the lives of children at the ages of 8 to 11, and make a long-term 10-year commitment to each child and family. We are delighted and honored to support their important work.
