This Sunday is Valentine’s Day and it has us all thinking of our loved ones. For Hearth Homes this holiday is a time to express our gratitude, love, and appreciation for those who make a huge impact in the lives of the mothers and children that we serve. We are grateful for the many partners that help us make a difference by contributing time and resources to help aid our cause. Without our financial partners and volunteers it would be impossible to serve the women at Hearth Homes and fulfill our mission. In 2015, mountains were moved at Hearth Homes. From women breaking free of addiction, children reunifying with their mothers and families learning how to create stability--lives were transformed! In no specific order, we would like to give a special thanks to recognize a few of our faithful partners:
* Dishman Dodge * Mutual of Enumclaw * Les Schwab * Kiwanis Foundation * * City of Spokane Valley * Intellitect Corp. * Millwood Presbyterian Church * * Spokane Valley United Methodist * Advent Lutheran Church * * Opportunity Christian Church * Life Center Church * Valley Real Life * * Hope Lutheran Church * Berean Bible Church *
“If you pour yourself out for the hungry and satisfy the needs of afflicted souls, then your light will rise in darkness, and your night will be like noonday.” Isaiah 58:10
One of the many valuable lessons of the bible is that when someone needs our help, we lend a hand no matter where the person comes from or what hardship he or she is facing. Jesus healed those who were broken and when we ask ourselves how to make the world a better place, we should begin by following His simple and excellent example. Helping those in our community is the most impactful way to help make a difference. When we go out into our communities and donate our time and resources we make a positive impact in not only the lives of those we are helping but in our own lives as well. All whom we serve have experienced adversity that has left them overwhelmed and in need of our help. Partnering with your time, finances, material, love, and guidance makes a world of difference in the lives of those we serve. Without the generosity of others, the women and children at Hearth Homes would have nowhere else to go, and would likely fall back into the dangerous cycles from which they desire to break free. We eternally grateful to those who partner with to ensure these families have an opportunity at life to the full! Thank you!
