It's easy to feel overwhelmed by the greatness of the homeless epidemic in our nation. Its disheartening to pass them on the street and know there is only so much we can do. The thing is....let's look at what we HAVE done. Here are just a few highlights of what the Rejoice in Hope Foundation has done since it began in May of 2017:
- Put on a homeless outreach and feeding on Skid Row in June
- Produced successful fundraising gala at the famous Millennium Biltmore Hotel in July
- Inducted 44 ambassadors from 28 states to make a movement through our #life4homeless program
- Opened the door for Juan from Skid Row to perform his music - he overcame years of stage fright by performing at our event and now has confidence again to get out there.
- Helped Sonja get off of Skid Row and teaching her on the job training, proper eating skills and instilling the confidence for her to return to Minnesota to reconcile with her children.
- Produced Healing Camp at Lake Hemet for women 40+ to reconnect and experience nature and heal with other women
- Inducted 10 new ambassadors in Seoul, South Korea to start a worldwide #life4homeless campaign
- SC Ambassadors Karis Wymbs and Raven Gilliard are working with local SC community organizations for homelessness. What a great inspiration to see our young people doing more in the community.
-Started a "Make Change for Homeless" campaign, where people will collect change in a piggy bank for donations
- WY ambassador Teresa Dell created a Rejoice in Hope coat drive and fundraiser for the local homeless population
