About Lillian's Arms
Supporting families in need in our community
We believe that addressing basic needs helps individuals move toward self-sufficiency. At this time, it is imperative for families to have access to the basics such as: nutritious food, safe housing, reliable transportation, and utilities. It is Lillian's Arms commitment to champion these in our community.
We believe all families can embrace who they are,
can define their future, and can change the world.
Lillian's Arms mission is to support communities with honor and provide powerful resources to those in need.
Hunger in America
Millions of children and families living in America face hunger and food insecurity every day.
Due to the effects of the coronavirus pandemic, more than 50 million people may experience food insecurity, including a potential 17 million children.
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.
