Jeremiah Program, an organization making a difference in Austin by disrupting the cycle of poverty for single mothers and their children, wants you to get involved! Executive Director, Gloria Gonzales-Dholakia, spoke with Studio 512 about it.

“Jeremiah Program is hosting its Love to L.I.V. Luncheon on Thursday, October 27th at 11:30 a.m. to celebrate its achievements, highlight success stories and hear from local families that have benefited from its efforts, and raise funds to continue its critical work in the community.

“Love to L.I.V. derives from the Jeremiah Program’s Empowerment sessions, where the core value is that all women are Lovable, Important, and Valuable. The Love to L.I.V. Luncheon will celebrate the amazing people that have supported the organization over the year, including honoring Ryan Companies with the Noble Champion Award, as well as Sharon and Bruce Walker with the Compassionate Heart Award. The event will also include the opportunity to hear from the moms themselves and how the Jeremiah Program has positively impacted their lives as well as their children’s.

“Individual tickets for the Love to L.I.V. Luncheon are currently $150. In addition to individual tickets, there are also sponsorship opportunities available for the luncheon including the Blazing Sponsor, Daring Sponsor, Inspired Sponsor, Mighty Duo and more.
