The Custody Project assists qualified mothers who can no longer provide the common necessities of life for their families, due to the cost of defending the custody or visitation of their children. Assisting mothers and their children with visitation and custody expenses in accordance with its mission, TCP recognizes that finances often diminish sharply and common necessities must be forfeited when legal expenses must take precedence to preserve a family’s welfare. For this reason, grants assist families directly with legal expenses or, when they have been paid, with food, utilities, rent, mortgage, car, and other expenses which had to be forfeited to cover the legal expenses. TCP does this through the Heart to Heart Program assisting qualified mothers with care, custody and visitation expenses, including reference, consultation, and caseload costs, via grants. In addition to TCP’s grant program, their revolving-door loan program serves when, as mothers repay their loans, the funds become available to help other families in need.
