Review for My Fathers House A Community Shelter Inc, Gresham, OR, USA
I remember when God gave Cathe a vision for this shelter. I worked for Cathe at East Hill church as one of her many nursery supervisors. The other shelters in the city had limits on a child's age, so not all children in a family could go together to a shelter. If a child was 12 or older they would need to go elsewhere. It is very difficult for a family to go anywhere for shelter when rules limit a child’s age. Though shelters do this to protect children from sexual child abuse it offered little hope to whole families with older children. Cathe expressed to me she wanted to find a solution to the problem. From the duplex to the larger building, My Father’s House is growing and becoming what God planted years ago in Cathe and Dan's heart.
Both my husband and I volunteered for a short period of time. The beautiful orcastration God delivered in the organization of the shelter was solid, visual proof that a mighty God called for this to happen.
Years later I entered seminary and asked Cathe if I might intern for the shelters chapel. The shelter offers a church service on Sunday. I look forward to my time in a place where God's love is abundant and in a chapel where the Holy Spirit is moving in mighty ways…….
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
watching the lives of people changed and in assisting them to relocate to their own apartment to begin their new life.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
continue to ask people to support the shelter. This is a great place to donate and give to others....
