Saving Amy was founded with a mission to empower individuals and families transitioning out of homelessness by transforming lives through mentoring, teaching life skills, educational advancement, and financial stability through employment. Amy’s story represents the impact that community can have on changing lives and ending the cycle of homelessness.
Amy and family are the reason Saving Amy was founded. While volunteering in a local homeless shelter, founder Jennifer Kiernan experienced that many of the families that were working towards a better life, fell back into homelessness or were stuck in poverty once they left the shelter.
Today, Amy is working, reunited with all of her children, and is living on her own. Her daughter is in her second year of college. Her son is a sophmore in highschool and a straight A student and is looking forward to attending college. Amy’s youngest is a carefree 11 year old.
