This is what it's all about. Changed lives. Journeys. When Heartisans took the first women into our job training program in January 2015, I had no idea how my own life would change. Heartisans is more than just a job training program. It is a coming together of community on mission. Through the tremendously talented volunteers who create the majority of the products we sell, the volunteers who tutor or transport our program participants, to the shoppers, to the community partners who help with specific needs we face, or the financial donors, that's what gives us the opportunity to build relationships and share 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 all with you. And while the couple of paragraphs we share about each woman is a short summary of her journey since coming to Heartisans, there are so many achievements, ups and downs, she has walked through, and we continue to walk through 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!
