Count On Me Family Foundation is made up of individuals dedicated to helping others. From our fabulous volunteers to our Board to our small and committed staff, everyone comes together to have fun while helping those in need! Come join our team!!
The Count On Me Family Foundation was formed in October of 2005 as an avenue for Shannon Mora and husband at the time, Jim, to give back to the community and focus on a passion for and dedication to helping children.
Shannon was involved with Special Olympics at an early age when she and her family cheered on her older sister, Whittney, at local competitions. That early outreach had Shannon hooked on helping empower children.
Having had the opportunity to live many places throughout her life, Shannon recognized the need to help under-served youth that is within every community. Her aspiration to give back with a powerful and meaningful platform culminated in the creation of the Count On Me Family Foundation.
The Foundation provides community programs and promotes awareness in support of children’s charities and organizations whose mission aligns with theirs, giving children the opportunity to realize their potential and achieve their dreams.

Count On Me Family Foundation strives to provide meaningful, impactful programs that empower, instill confidence, and bring joy to children and children’s organizations.
Count On Me Family Foundation's passion is to enhance the lives of children in need whether they are medically fragile, economically disadvantaged, or developmentally challenged. With this in mind, the Foundation has developed individual unique programs that reach children directly and positively impact their lives.
Our flagship program, the Count On Me Holiday Shops, delivers a pop-up shop in children’s hospitals so that children who spend their holidays hospital bound have the opportunity to “shop” for gifts for their loved ones. The Count On Me team of staff and volunteers transforms a room at the hospital into a winter wonderland to provide a one-on-one, empowering shopping experience as kiddos pick, wrap, and decorate gifts from a wide array of items. Children are encouraged to express their creativity and make their own decisions - something that is often taken from them when hospitalized! To learn more, visit our Holiday Shops page.
Count On Me Family Foundation believes in partnering with non-profit organizations that improve the lives of children. Through these partnerships we create a synergy which allows us to do more to assist children in need and at risk. From our signature partners like Special Olympics and Boys & Girls Clubs to smaller children's charities, we have found that when we work together we are able to accomplish greater goals that empower even more children.
If you are interested in making a difference through the gift of your time, please let us know. Nothing is quite as special and fulfilling as volunteering your time towards helping children!
