I first became aware of Bountiful Harvest when my husband served on the board and donated funds to this wonderful ministry. I'm mission's president at my church and I have been able to hold services and actually have some of the women who live there share their testimonies and it is so inspiring to hear their stories, but more inspiring to see their lives change and eventually become independent and living on their own. This ministry is so important to our community because the need is great. There are so many homeless women and children. Also the level of support services they offer is why I believe they are so successful. They offer self-help classes and training on parenting, health and nutrition. They also offer addiction counseling and/or substance abuse seminars. They offer boundary setting skills and job placement help etc. They encourage continued education not only for personal life long skills but for the "whole" person. Each person must seek out a change in their moral character then seek out our Nation's Godly Heritage. (Entered by GreatNonprofits staff member on behalf of reviewer)
