About Lillian's Arms

Supporting families in our community

"Quality of life” refers broadly to four factors: (1) subjective wellbeing; (2) social networks; (3) health behaviors; and (4) self-concept. We believe that addressing these aspects of quality of life helps individuals and families thrive. Lillian's Arms recognizes that in our communities, everyone's basic needs are not met. This negatively impacts quality of life. By connecting families to resources, offering financial assistance through grants, and cultivating supportive community, Lillian's Arms advocates for the well-being of all families.

We believe all families deserve to be happy and healthy.

Hunger in America

Millions of children and families living in America face hunger and food insecurity every day.

  • According to the USDA's latest Household Food Insecurity in the United States report, more than 35 million people in the United States struggled with hunger in 2019. 

  • In 2018, 14.3 million American households were food insecure with limited or uncertain access to enough food.

  • Households with children are more likely to experience food insecurity. Before the coronavirus pandemic, more than 10 million children live in food-insecure households.

  • Many households that experience food insecurity do not qualify for federal nutrition programs and need to rely on their local food banks and other hunger relief organizations for support.

To assist with alleviating hunger, Lillian's Arms maintains a pantry program and distributes food to families. 

Tutoring and mentoring students

Lillian's Arms connects students in the metro Atlanta area with live, tutors and mentors (with your help!). Our tutoring and mentoring experience is designed to be ultra-flexible because we believe it should be easy to help students succeed. Whether a child or young adult needs homework assistance or help navigating college applications, the Lillian's Arms tutoring and mentoring program is committed to connecting families to the resources needed.
