Did you know one in four North Carolina children live in poverty? It is impossible for one full-time employed, minimum wage worker to support even one child without falling into poverty.
Miranda's social worker suggested she hit her pillow when she gets angry. This would work if she had a pillow. In fact, it was discovered that she sleeps on the floor because she has no mattress. By making one call to A Doorway to Hope, her social worker was able to secure a pillow, mattress and bedding for her.

"Our family has been blessed to volunteer with ADTH families as part of our family tradition. To see families in such need of basic necessities and then see smiles on other children's faces when delivering gifts really warms your heart. It's been the highlight of our Christmas celebration! As a result, my children became more aware of the need in their own community and they looked forward to seeing our adopted family each year. To make a difference and see it first hand is a heart warming experience."
