In this ever-changing society, local and global, it is wonderful to have organizations with the goal of improving the welfare of people from every walk of life. HOPE RESTORATION MINISTRIES is one of these organizations. Although it's focus is to assist young women, the saying still holds true, "Each one, Reach one." Indeed, we all benefit from each other's experiences when we share our stories and a helping hand. Chatiqua Vaughn and her staff are blessed to be able to positively shoulder young women in need of someone to care. One quote to remember: "Help others get ahead. You will always stand taller with someone else on your shoulders."

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

the lives of the young women whom have greatly benefited. Both parties are encouraged, those who serve and those being served.

This is a much needed ministry. So many of our young people are lost and they have no place to turn. I thank God for sister Chatiqua's obedience to the Lord in starting this ministry. God is using her in such a powerful way. This young lady knows first hand what it is like to strugle as a teen and she also knows Gods restoration power. God has raised her up for such a time as this. Praise God for Restoration Ministries; it is meeting the needs of our community! This is a great ministry to support!!

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!!

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!!
