Professional with expertise in this field
I met the Directors of Bountiful Harvest Ministries prior to the opening of the Beauty for Ashes Transitional Housing facility. It has been my privilege to encourage them in the process of locating a suitable facility and designing a program to address the needs of homeless women and children in the Madison County, Indiana area. I have at all times been impressed with the integrity of these leaders and their ability to create a safe and supportive environment in which the needs of
women and children can be met. I know personally many clients who have benefitted from the services provided by this agency.
