Get Help Give Now

At Star of Hope Mission, we meet people in search of hope. As we provide them with support and opportunities to become more stable, we also teach them how to build a strong relationship with Jesus Christ. That is how we truly bring change to the lives of those we serve. A woman by the name of Lakesha lost everything to her addiction and turned to Star of Hope for help. This is her story:

    As a single mother of four beautiful children, I struggled to make ends meet. I became complacent in my addiction … gave up on school and lost my job. Eventually, I lost my apartment, and my children and I became homeless. I came to Star of Hope looking for a place to lay my head and keep my children safe from harm. Soon, I joined the New Hope program to fight my addiction.

    After being in the New Hope program, I learned about co-dependency, anger management and spirituality. Also, I gained great parenting skills and learned how to accept when things are out of my control. Since I have been here, I have been able to depend on God more and allow Him to direct me on the right path in life. I am so grateful for my health, my children, and my new positive mindset. Because of Star of Hope, I can live a more productive life!

    Thank you to the Star of Hope staff for helping me reach my full potential. To my children, I want to thank you for loving me through all the mess I put you through. Also, I would like to thank the donors and volunteers for their support. Now, my future holds endless possibilities! I want to show my children that there is a better way of life without drugs. I plan to finish my internship and pursue a medical career. I know that God will help me obtain the job He has for me. The sky’s the limit!

What a beautiful testimony! Lakesha has turned her life around and become a better mother for her children. Coming to Star of Hope Mission was her first step in the right direction. God has given Lakesha hope and a greater purpose in life! Because of your support, she has a bright future in store. Thank you!
