About Us

Hi! My name is Crystal Fedeli, the Founder of You Made a Way.


We are a 501c(3) nonprofit organization on a mission to help prospective and current ​single moms struggling to afford basic necessities and who lack a support system get on ​the road to becoming financially free.


Did you know that the research tells us that an overwhelming amount of women are ​faced with the choice of being pregnant and alone, condemning themself and their ​unborn child to a life of poverty and a lack of support or to end the life of their child ​inside them?


To make matters worse, the research tells us that their fear is right because an ​overwhelming amount of women faced with this choice who have their baby are ​struggling to afford their most basic necessities.


To me, this does not seem like a fair choice or valuing life at all.


This was my story, with my first child I found myself pregnant and alone.


I chose my baby despite knowing we were facing a life of poverty and lack of a support ​system because I had faith that God would provide all of our needs.


We did face really hard times though. When my infant daughter was just shy of 2 months old we were homeless in the dead of ​winter of 2018. We were also food insecure and there were times I didn’t eat to make sure she always had enough formula. To make ​matters worse, the day after we became homeless the engine in my car blew and more.


No governmental or nonprofit would help us until she was about 5 months of age.


Eventually we made it and I went on to found You Made a Way to help prospective and current single moms still financially ​struggling!
