Our Mission & Vision

“To protect, empower and support those doing the same for the next generation”

Our mission is to eliminate barriers of necessity and empower individuals and families in their pursuit of starting or maintaining a family. We believe that everyone should have equal opportunities and access to the resources, support, and choices necessary to fulfill their dreams of parenthood and thrive in the process.

We are committed to dismantling the financial, social, and emotional barriers that often prevent individuals and couples from starting a family. We strive to create a world where the decision to have children is not constrained by financial limitations, societal expectations, or medical obstacles. Through education, advocacy, and innovative solutions, we aim to provide comprehensive support to individuals and couples at every stage of their journey towards parenthood. 

We are working towards fostering supportive environments that celebrate diverse family structures and recognize the unique challenges faced by different individuals and communities. We will strive to create a society that values and respects all paths to parenthood, regardless of gender, employment, marital status, or socioeconomic background. By addressing the financial, social, and emotional barriers associated with starting or maintaining a family, we aspire to create a village of support needed to face parenthood

“Together, we aspire to shape a world where every human life receives the support they need, regardless of the challenges or circumstances they may be facing”

At the heart of our nonprofit’s vision is a deep commitment to creating a world where compassion, inclusivity, and support are the cornerstones of society. We envision a future where every individual, regardless of their background, circumstances, or the challenges they encounter, is provided with the essential support and resources required to lead a fulfilling life.

This vision underscores our belief that no one should be left behind or disadvantaged due to circumstances beyond their control. We are dedicated to breaking down barriers and ensuring that every person, from all walks of life, has equal access to the support they need. Whether someone is facing financial hardships, societal prejudices, health issues, or any other obstacle, our vision is to be the driving force behind a collective effort to offer assistance and empowerment.

We believe that by working together, we can create a more compassionate and equitable world, one where every human life is valued, and where support and assistance are readily available to those in need. Ultimately, our vision is a call to action, an invitation to join us in the journey towards creating a village for each family we serve.

Erzsi Moffatt

Executive Director

My name is Erzsi-Janay Moffatt, I am the Executive Director of the Dandy Charitable Foundation. I have spent the last 9 years pursuing opportunities to give back to my community. My journey led me to my most recent position at Hope Pregnancy Resource Center in Flagstaff, Arizona.  Hope is where I personally witnessed the profound impact that comes from assisting families in need through community support and resources.

Growing up alongside six brothers, I experienced the strength of a united family unit, a village of unwavering support that had my back and empowered me in every battle. My parents’ deliberate efforts to foster an environment of mutual support for their children inspired me deeply to extend that same village to others. Becoming a mother in 2020 magnified my understanding of the vital role a village plays in raising children. Witnessing first hand through my life and work the unfortunate reality that not every parent has access to such a network. 

With the support of my own village, I established the Dandy Charitable Foundation, where we collaborate to create a support system that is accessible to any family in need of one

My journey with community service  began 9 years ago with an LA-based organization focused on helping support homeless members of our community with resources needed to reestablish their livelihood. Over the years, my involvement instilled in me a conviction to use my service for a broad variety of causes. When my path took me to Arizona I began volunteering my time to organizations and community partners that support struggling parents in their pursuit of maintaining a stable environment for their families
