Through its mission to help women, children, and single parents who are bravely struggling to rebuild their lives after experiencing trauma or abuse, The 482 Collective focuses on providing timely support of non-perishable food items, cleaning supplies, and personal hygiene products to individuals and families in need. At the heart of this non-profit organization is Maureen Leshem and a team of passionate volunteers, contributors, and partners who are energized by giving on a human level, in a way that preserves the dignity of those in need. The people they support have experienced any – or many – of the following forms of abuse: intimate partner/domestic violence, physical/emotional abuse, sexual assault, human trafficking, poverty, or homelessness – all while raising children. The 482 Collective recognizes that an abusive situation is one of the most complex and isolating experiences a person can face. Harnessing the collective generosity and resources of the community can make a world of difference and create a sense of hope for the future.
