This is what it's all about—changed lives, journeys. When Heartisans took the first group of women into our job readiness program in January 2015, I had no idea how my own life would change. Heartisans is more than just a job readiness program. It is a coming together of community on mission. Because of the tremendously talented volunteers, mentors who tutor, transport, and encourage our program participants, shoppers, community partners who help with specific needs we face, and those who contribute financially, we have the opportunity to build relationships and share with others how God is the true change agent; we are just his hands and feet.
We have so many journey stories to tell and I can't wait to share them with all of you! The following paragraphs are just a small glimpse into the each woman’s journey. She has experienced several ups and downs since coming to Heartisans, but we continue to walk with her as she moves toward her goals and self-sufficiency.
Thank you for joining us on mission in our community through your support. You are making a difference!
