I know about Hope Restoration Ministries through the CEO, Ms Vaughn. Since I met this awesome outreach worker, I have known her to be a person to reach out to young people, everywhere she goes. She would give her last dime to them and go hungry, just to help them out. When I heard that she was opening a non-profit organization for homeless adolescents, I was delighted! I am in full support of this organization, and often donate as much as I can. Hope Restoration Ministries truly cares about people. They are really making a difference in our community!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

They really care about what they do. They go above and beyond the call of duty!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

The work they do is priceless!!

I came to know Hope Restoration Ministries by the President/CEO, Chatiqua. She came a few years ago to the local church that I attend. She would reach out to the young people as much as she could, sometimes giving them the last dime in her pocket, so that they could get something to eat. We found out that two young adults got put out of their homes and were out on the streets.One of them had a small child. Chatiqua heard about them, and immediately took them into her own house. I watched how she took care of them, bought them clothes, food etc.Later I found out that she was starting a non-profit just for homeless adolescents, like the ones she had been helping all along. She asked me to be apart of the organization, and I agreed. I am delighted to be apart of an organization that truly cares about serving people.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the lives of the young adults that we have helped so far. They are really doing well!!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The love that is displayed, the care and concern that Hope Restoration Ministries has for people are genuine!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Kind and generous!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

well the work they are doing is priceless, what can I say?

Well, where do I start? I came to Hope Restoration Ministries in 2007 all the way from California. When I arrived in Tennessee I had no place to live, no transportation, no money, no job, no licence, and I was not attending school. When I went to Hope Restoration Ministries with these issues I immediately recieved help. Within weeks I was found a place to live. I was appointed a Case Manager and not only did she help me search for jobs, she even took me on interviews. Within 1 day of searching for a job and was offered a position at a sturdy, reliable company. I am still with the same company today. Shortly after finding a place to live and getting a job I was accepted into a major university. Not only did Hope Restoration Ministries help me with these issues I was also taught how to manage my money, how to balance my check book, and began to learn how to drive. Hope Restoration Ministries helped me learn how to drive and I got my licence on the first attempt. Also, I began to save money and bought a car. Hope Restoration Ministries helped me become the woman I am today and is still helping me to be a more responsible, wiser person.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

myself, as well as other clients.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

seeing myself change as well as others. THey will not give up on you and will not let you give up on yourself and that is GREAT!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

AWESOME! I've never seen such a wonderful CEO who just genuinely wants to help youth and make a change in the community. They just want to see people make it.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

it could and WOULD by a HUGE mansion and take in as many youth as possible to fight homelessness and increase independancy!

What can I say, Hope Restoration Ministries provides all the services needed for young women so that they can have the life that God always intended for them to have. Many young women are not able to get the help they need because they have no one to help them or they are beyond the age to get assistance from the government; that's where Hope Restoration Ministries comes in. They offer not only help emotionally and finanically but also spirtually. I urge all young women out there that need help to put your trust in Hope Restoration Ministries, you will truly be blessed!!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the true dedication not only from the staff but from the founder, she has put her heart and soul into this ministry!!

They care about you, and really want to see you suceed in life.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

nice to me!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

build a larger facility to help more young ladies who are homeless.
