Earlier this week here at Village of Hope we held our first annual Women’s Luncheon. I had the opportunity to share the podium with several co-workers, who shared about their passion for working at Orange County Rescue Mission. It is an honor to have such committed women on our team.
But, especially amazing to me was to see students take the podium and share their hearts with the women. Leticia blessed us with a song, this being the first time she has ever sung in front of others. And, Chantel shared her story of going from complete despair to hope, because of her experience here at Orange County Rescue Mission. Both of these women came from very difficult circumstances, but are now developing the mindset to understand that they are loved and valued by God, and are developing the skills to raise their children well and successfully navigate the challenges of being a single mom.
The listeners, the women in the audience, were inspired by their time with us. Seeing Village of Hope and hearing our stories can be a positive, life changing experience.
Please come visit us at Village of Hope for a tour. Come on your own, or bring a group. Seeing the community, hearing the stories and asking questions helps to see how donors have a great impact with Orange County Rescue Mission.
