Review for INHERITANCE OF HOPE INC, Pisgah Forest, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I adore this organization... plain and simple. Volunteering for IoH is a joy and an incredible privilege. I'm blessed to have served at 10 legacy retreats and I do not plan on stopping anytime soon. :) Getting to see families strengthened by the support of those in similar situations is amazing. I love seeing people leave retreats uplifted and with a renewed sense of spirit. It is wonderful to see so many diverse families blessed by an organization. IoH literally thinks of everything to make a family's time on a retreat special. Leaving a retreat is always difficult because of the incredible bonds made in only four days. I constantly come home changed and inspired by the people I had the blessing to serve. People I have met on trips now feel like family to me. This organization is purely magical.

Review for INHERITANCE OF HOPE INC, Pisgah Forest, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Hello! My name is Jacey and I have served as a volunteer on 6 Inheritance of Hope retreats. This organization is amazing! It's so hard to describe these trips and the impact they not only have on the families who participate, but all the volunteers and staff. It's such a blessing to be a helping hand to these beautiful people. I enjoy praying for the participants before and after the trips and just trying to show them God's love. The amazing events and fun experiences have included whitewater rafting, staying in a hotel in Times Square, and riding Space Mountain in Disney. Most special to me though, are the memories I have gained by being in the group sessions with the kids and simply being a helper and listener. These sessions not only assist each individual in processing their feelings, but have created strong bonds between the kids. These trips are a great combination of fun and practical support. I have enjoyed meeting families in difficult circumstances and trying to lighten their burden in as many ways as I can. Inheritance of Hope provides lifelong memories in a welcoming, loving atmosphere. I look forward to serving on future retreats!
