The 4th annual MSSP bowling fundraiser at Landmark Lanes in Peoria was a success!  Fifty-one  bowlers participated in the bowling fundraiser benefiting the Multi-Services to Single Parents Program (MSSP) serving Peoria, Tazewell and Woodford counties. A total of $1,357.00 was raised by FamilyCore and Lutheran Social Services, who partner to provide single parent services to Central Illinois residents. Federal money and local United Way monies provide the base of funding, but do not cover the whole cost of provision of services.

Esther and her son bowling at the eventMSSP provides in-home, supportive counseling and practical services to single parent households. Enhancement of parenting skills, budgeting, identifying healthy relationships, housing, employment, education and connection to community resources are targeted as single parents take steps towards greater financial and emotional stability.
