Mission Statement:

In the heart of Pomona, The Thaddeus Foundation is a charity organization that has been aiding the local community since 1975. Our mission is to inspire HOPE and foster GROWTH in youth and women in need.

The Thaddeus Foundation has two main goals:

  • To stop the downward spiral of at-risk and foster youth. We want to reach struggling youth before they be-come pregnant, homeless, or get involved with drugs and alcohol. By providing them with valuable life, college and career development skills, they will be able to reverse their downward spiral so they can become our future leaders.

  • To empower, guide, and support women and their families. We want to give teen mothers, single mothers, mothers of children with special needs, and mothers that are just in need the knowledge, confidence, and the opportunity, to provide a better life for the next generation.

Current Activity:

 Our focus is to bring hope and growth locally to Pomona and the surrounding areas. In 2014, we began offering programs and services to improve the lives of youth and women in need.

Teen Center

The Teen Center offers programs and services to youth in need. Our goal is to reach youth in challenging situations such as: foster youth, homeless youth, teen moms, pregnant teens, at-risk youth and latchkey kids. We want to show them we believe in them and are here to support them in every way possible because they are our future! We offer counseling, life coaching, and college and career development workshops. The Teen center is geared towards assisting the next generation in becoming the healthy, strong, and empowered men and women that God created them to be.
Our college and career development services include, but are not limited to:

  • College Planning

We also have workshops such as Personal Finance For Teens, Healthy Habits = Healthy You, Teen Leadership, Stress Management, Teen Violence Prevention, and Teen Life 101.

In addition, we are starting the process of opening a teen shelter to provide short-term emergency and long -term housing for our homeless, foster and at-risk youth. We need your help to make this happen!

 

Women’s Center

The Women’s Center offers programs and services to women in need. Our goal is to help single moms, moms of children with special needs, retired moms, teen moms, disabled moms and struggling moms. We provide workshops to teach life and career skills. When we are able to assist a woman in developing new skills it affects her entire family. Her children see her learning, growing, and working hard and, as a result, they become inspired to do the same thing. Helping women learn new skills and to become healthier, stronger, and empowered to be the woman God created them to be, we are able to stop the cycle of her children falling into the same habits and traps that have kept them stuck. We have then affected the entire next generation, which is so exciting to see and be a part of!
We serve women in many different walks of life through our programs. That means a single mom on welfare, whether it is a single mom on welfare that needs to learn new skills so she can get a well-paying job, or a teen mom that doesn’t think she can go to college now, or a woman who has the heart of an entrepreneur and wants to open her own business. Our services address each of the different needs clients have, including counseling and life coaching.
