Mothers Trust Foundation (MTF) has provided immediate assistance to children in Lake County since 1998. Barbara Monsor founded the organization following an 18-year career at Youth Guidance in Chicago, where she witnessed firsthand how a seemingly small amount of assistance might change a challenging situation for a child. Hers was a simple idea – connect people in desperate situations with those who want to provide assistance where it will truly make a difference. Barbara’s vision was to create hope where little existed. Focusing on individual requests, we ask what every child needs to stay on their feet, to maintain their dignity, to keep their family together, to make the impossible possible. From the first small grant in 1998 through the end of 2016, MTF has assisted more than 30,000 children and their families with over 2.4 million dollars in grants … perhaps giving them a reason to feel “normal” and to have hope for the future.
