    Founded with the purpose of empowering and giving hope through our advocacy for women who head up their households alone as single mothers (and fathers).

    Single mothers face daily crisis and struggles, whether it be financial or health related issues. They strive to have the strength and encouragement to rise above it all to ensure that their children receive a good education, quality childcare, food, clothing and shelter. Single mothers often let their own health go unaddressed for the sake of their children's well being. The wellness of women​​ is an important one for JLA and we want single mothers to know, that they are not alone and we want to make their lives a little easier with feelings of hope and dignity.

    Grassroots is a multi-service crisis intervention center providing 24-hour crisis intervention services, emergency and transitional shelter, and community education. Grassroots supports individuals and families experiencing a personal, situational, mental health, or shelter crisis.

    These days, carrying out that mission gets complicated. Today, providing various services requires more staff, more planning, more resources and more skill than ever before. That’s why Grassroots is so grateful to all who support the work that we do.

    Consider supporting Grassroots.

    At the age of 18, University of Maryland freshman and basketball manager Zachary Lederer was diagnosed with brain cancer for the second time in his young life. In January 2012, after surgery to resect a brain tumor, Zach asked his dad to take a picture of him making a strongman pose to show friends and family that he would be just fine. The picture quickly went viral and others began making the pose called “Zaching,” sending their pictures to Zach to post online.

    The Zaching Against Cancer Foundation spreads support and strength to others battling cancer and all those connected to cancer patients.

    Zaching Against Cancer Foundation (ZACF) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit foundation established to provide support to cancer patients and their support networks through scholarships, research and direct patient outreach. Money raised by ZACF goes towards The Little Things Program, scholarships, an internship and donations to cancer research and outreach organizations.
