HRM IS A GREAT ORGANIZATION FOR YOUNG TEENS AND MOMS I WAS ALMOST READY TO GIVE UP BUT I REMEMBERED A LOVING AND CARING LADY NAMED MS.VAUGHN TOLD ME IF I EVER NEEDED HER HELP FOR ANYTHING JUST TO GIVE HER A CALL. WELL I CALLED HER AND SHE DIDNT LET ME DOWN WITH NO FAMILY HERE IN NASHVILLE AND NO WHERE TO GO SHE HELPED ME FIND SHELTER FOR ME AND MY DAUGHTER AND NOT ONLY THAT SHE HELP ME FIND MY WAY BACK INTO THE ARMS OF THE LORD. IM SO BLESSED I GAVE UP ON SOME OF MY BAD HABITS AND I WAS PROMISED ANOTHER CHANCE ON LIFE AND IM GOING TO TAKE THIS SECOND CHANCE AND USE IT! WHAT MS.VAUGHN IS DOING WITH THE ORGANIZATION IS SO GREAT BECAUSE ITS NOT MANY PEOPLE OR PLACES THAT WOULD DO THIS FOR ANYONE AT THE LAST MINUTE THESE TYPES OF THINGS TAKE TIME OR PEOPLE JUST TURN THEIR BACKS ON YOU AND YOU ARE LEFT IN THE COLD. I REALLY WISH IT WAS MORE PEOPLE IN THE WORLD WITH MS.VAUGHNS HEART. THANK YOU MS. VAUGHN TO YOU AND YOUR HELPERS.

I came to Hope Restoration Ministries when I was really needing shelter. I am a college student that got down on my luck. I went to them and they reached out to me immediately! I do not know where I would be if they were not there for me. I am So grateful!! I wish them the VERY best!!

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

My own life. They helped me when I really, really needed.

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

Geniune, they are real, and compassionate.

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

Reach out to millions of homeless young ladies!

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!

I came to Hope Restoration Ministries needing somewhere to live, and help getting my GED. I also was having major car trouble. They helped me get into the local GED program, gave me the finances to fix my car, and provided me with food and shelter.

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

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.
