Welcome to Living Transparent Inc.
Living Transparent was born in March 2017, our founder Michelle Jackson grew up in poverty and in an abusive relationship. Out of the hurt and pain of being homeless and hungry with four children, she pulled her self and her children out of the struggle and put a plan together to give back to the community and the city which she lived in. And from that day forward, she has been servicing her local counties and communities, with food, clothing and shelter and also rental and utility assistance.
As you know living in poverty is a reality for many children, families and individuals around the world. In 2017, the United States Department of Agriculture estimated that in the U.S. alone, more than 40 million people face food insecurity,( which that number has risen since our recent COVID pandemic) which it defines as limited or uncertain access to adequate foods and assistance. That’s why we are working to break down the barriers to access to healthier, nutritious foods and to provide assistance to those who are in need.
In March 2017, we made our first public commitment to fight poverty in our city and surrounding cities – we have been fighting food insecurity , lack of financial support since then, helping over 500 individuals our first month, and that number has risen drastically with the COVID-19 pandemic and also with the winter storm that has just passed in February 2021. Living Transparent Inc. is rooted and grounded with lots of commitment in helping to provide meals, rental and utility support to families, children and homeless individuals in need of our services, and we will also provide nutrition education classes to families and individuals by the end of 2021, we will reach our goal with your help.
Here at Living Transparent, we see opportunity where others see insurmountable challenges. In our communities and surrounding cities, families and individuals are tasked with moving mountains and we’re here to help. We bring powerful solutions and expertise to help you overcome challenges and create lasting social change!
