NONPROFIT MEMBER: Infinite Strength
Infinite Strength is a Connecticut-based nonprofit which provides Recurring Monthly Basic Needs Financial Grants to underserved single mothers living with MBC. They are the only nonprofit in the country with this specific mission. To qualify for these grants, women must reside in Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Massachusetts, Maryland, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island or Vermont.
In addition, Infinite Strength offers women and their children the emotional support so necessary to a better quality of life by offering in-person retreats for those families residing in Connecticut and quarterly panel discussions (held in person and virtually) where oncologists, researchers, therapists, social workers and advocates come together from around the country to take a deep dive into the challenges those living with this disease must face.
Infinite Strength helps women with this disease find the courage to keep going even when they feel like giving up. And they give their children comfort by knowing there is a community of support.
