SIMPLY HELPING OTHERS

The mission of the Billy Mock Foundations is simply "Helping Others”.

The Foundation accomplishes its mission through 3 main activities:


1) Families in Need
The Foundation actively networks with social workers and other members of the community to identify families that are under stress due to a sick child or a sick parent with young children. The representatives of the Foundation will talk with the family and try to identify some ways it can help. Many times the help is financial but many times it is proving support by writing get well letters or something as simple as helping to rake leaves.

2) Encouraging young people to be active in their community.
The Foundation accomplishes this in several ways. The first is the Pay is Forward Program. The Pay it Forward Program makes grants to middle school and high school students and challenges them to use the grant as seed money to develop and execute a community service project.

3) The third way the foundation encourages young people to be active in their community is by granting educational grants to 8th graders and high school students who have demonstrated leadership in their community.
