If I could help every person in need, undoubtedly, I would. Yet, I realize that I’m only one laborer in the field of a plentiful harvest. The call to serve extends to not just one—but all. Across the country an abundance of single mothers are working every day, while going to school, raising young children, and struggling to make ends meet. To put daily bread on the table is a challenge no mother should have to face. Moreover, her plight to choose “food or furniture” for her family is a weight that could last for months, even years. However, if every heart would extend a hand we all would reap the benefits of a fruitful harvest—trusting that our labor is not in vain.

Pearl in Her Purse Fund
Margie Faye Davis Webber
October 19, 1936 - April 11, 2001
H.O.M.E., Inc. is a 501(c)3 organization founded to help Single Mothers who are working and/or going to school,
survive the ‘tough times’ and persevere towards an ‘appointed time’ for success in life.
We provide immediate resources to rebuild, restore and refurnish homes of Moms
emerging from divorce, domestic violence, incarceration or in desperate need of starting over.
Margie Faye Davis Webber was a loving, kind and courageous mother of five.
After enduring years of domestic violence, she escaped the abusive marriage with her two youngest daughters,
two suitcases, and a steadfast will to succeed. With her praying hands clutching mine we boarded a plane—I was nine years old.
It gives me great pleasure to honor the memory of my mother’s fight and spirit to persevere.
As tribute to her bravery, the ‘Pearl in Her Purse’ Hardship Fund
was established to honor Single Mothers who exhibit remarkable faith and strength in the midst of hardship.
During the year, four courageous moms are selected as ‘Pearl of the Quarter’
and featured in our String of Pearls newsletter. Each of these mothers are given a small monetary token of appreciation and awarded the
Margie Faye Davis Webber ‘Diamond Award’ at our annual H.O.M.E. for the Holidays brunch and tea social.
Our 'Pearl in the Purse' Fund is used as discretionary funding to help meet immediate needs in emergency situations.
100% of your contribution to this fund will help support single mothers facing hardship.
“When Mothers feel they have nothing else to lose… encouragement shows up to remind them they have everything more to gain.”
Thank you in advance for your consideration and financial contribution to this fund.
