You filled Jessica’s* eyes with tears. Even though Jessica had observed 32 birthdays, nobody had ever celebrated one. This year, because of your support, Faith House baked Jessica her first birthday cake, and she could not hold back her emotion. It was not just any cake, but one made in her favorite flavor and accommodating her dietary restrictions. Jessica had never known the love of a family until she arrived at this home that you sustain.
Many women’s shelters are institutional in style, with bedrooms resembling hospital rooms, but you made Faith House more than a house—it is a home. You allow women who experience homelessness to have a short-term place to stay and a long-term family. Many of these women learn for the first time how to receive unconditional love and show it to their children because you give to the ministry of Faith House.
