A wonderful 2022 Cherish the Children of God Breakfast!

Thank you to our speakers and our anonymous donors for leading the way with a $400,000 matching gift! Throughout the day, we will share more pictures telling the story of this amazing event which ensures we are able to close our financial gap of $2.5 million and continue to serve those like Corey who find their way to us. Thank you to our table captains and all of our guests who attended and chose to invest in our life-changing work!!


Happy 🧡

No fooling here! We could NOT do this work without our wonderful and dedicated volunteers. Last year, over 600 volunteers gave almost 3,300 hours to the people we serve. 💥


Michael, U.S. Army Veteran, entered the doors of our Veterans Transitional Living Facility over a year ago. He recently shared how this program has transformed his life:

1. The importance of having a community. He said, “It’s good to know you have someone, a fellow comrade, who can identify with you.”

2. It helped me find new perspective. “I’ve been able to experience freedom in areas of my life that have weighed me down over the years.”

3. I found purpose in my life. “My goal when I leave this program is to devote my life to assisting other veterans and their families.”

Our wonderful volunteer, Melanie, made a special delivery to our South Pointe Place residents! They were appreciative of the goodies they received to usher in the spring season complements of Karen and Keith Evans. 🥰

Funny story, one of our sweet residents thought the bath bomb was an Easter Egg, so she used the ceramic paint set to decorate the “egg”. Here’s a pic of the final product! 🐰💓✝️


Meet Brandy.

Brandy shared her story at our Hope Begins Here tour last week. In 2019, she was living and working a full-time job in Houston when she experienced a near-death car crash. After brain surgery and beginning the steps to a full recovery, Brandy chose to move back to Shreveport to be closer to her family while she prayed for a new beginning. That’s when she found her way to Corbitt Lodge, our 12-unit apartment complex for individuals with disabilities.

Brandy shared, “It [Corbitt Lodge] is a peace of heaven for me…. we all treat each other like family. It’s just a wonderful place to be and I thank God for all you beautiful people.”
