if you believe that acts of kindness, giving, and generosity enrich your life and your community, you deserve to have a structure for offering help in ways that feel safe for you and the ones you love.

How, when, and why we give help are extremely personal choices. By giving ourselves permission to hold our own safety in high regard and to set boundaries, we put ourselves in a stronger position to give to others while taking care of ourselves at the same time.

This is one person’s story about choices they made when someone in a parking lot asked for help – it’s just one illustration of how this assessment process might look.
