a note from our executive director

continued from june 2019 newsletter

  

What is better than witnessing life transformation in the people we serve? We are off to an exciting start this year as God has been doing a mighty work in the lives of our residents as evidenced by 10 professions of faith, 20 rededications, 12 baptisms and 6 baby dedications.


 Knowing that our children are involved in 6 weeks of Vacation Bible School this summer on our campus provided by Faithbridge Church volunteers blesses my heart.  This time last year during VBS 8 of our children received Christ as their Savior. 


By partnering with us, we all have the opportunity to see lives changed for eternity, and know that spiritual foundations are being established to help exiting residents face the upcoming challenges and trials of this life. Our former residents should be positioned well to live meaningful and purposeful lives.


Due to an increase in the need for our services we reached an all-time high of 130 daily residents this month. Unfortunately, there has not been a decrease in the number of people needing our services, and too many get turned away each year. With this in mind, we are beginning to explore and develop plans to increase our capacity through an expansion project. Please stay tuned as more details will be forthcoming later this year.


Needless to say, we need your help now more than ever, and I hope that we can count on your support. Together we will keep fulfilling our mission to serve homeless women and children so that they reclaim their lives, exit successfully and have the foundation in place to maintain their independence.


In His service,

Richard Hill
