Stephanie Mincey is a local hairstylist (currently on a break to care for her 7 month old and her elementary school aged daughter.) She also sells Mary Kay, but all that is not why we are crazy about her. Every few weeks, in true Stephanie fashion, she shows up with her clippers and scissors and turns a room at the mission into a salon and blesses us so much. Last week, she loved on the ladies by holding a ladies night and gave us some great tips on skin care. We love you, Stephanie, and ... See more

Everyone makes mistakes. Some that come into the mission are even suffering from the mistakes of others. Whatever the reason, there is always a chance for a new start. Today, two of our residents spoke at a Rotary meeting and told their stories of addiction....one having lost a career as a paramedic, his home and some of his family. The beautiful thing about their stories is it's part of them, but in their past and they are thriving because of a new chance here at Open Hearts. We are all ... See more

When I woke up this morning,
I asked myself, “What is life about?”
I found the answer in my room….the fan said, “Be a breath of air.”
The roof said, “Aim high.”
The window said, “Behold the world!”
The clock said, “Every minute is precious.”
The mirror said, “Reflect before you act.”
The calendar said, “Be up to date.”
The door said, “Push hard for your goals.”
The floor said, “Kneel down and pray”
and the phone said, “”Reach out and connect with ... See more

We love watching our "family" members be successful. Go, girl go!! Melissa is so devoted to her job at Claxton Poultry. When you have a good employer and good supervisors, it shows. We wouldn't be able to reach the people we do if it were not for volunteers and supporters that allow yourselves to be used by God in a special way. To God be the glory for His provisions. Anybody at any time can experience hard times; no one os immune to trials and tribulation. When you turn it over to the Lord, ... See more

When former residents come back to volunteer and give back. Being productively active is something we stress because it keeps the mind occupied when one may be off work. ❤❤ Volunteering prevents idleness and helps lift others. “Through laziness, the rafters sag; because of idle hands, the house leaks.” Ecclesiastes 10:18

The face of homelessness is not always what we have in our minds. Yesterday, it was the face of one of our own residents, a CNA, donning her razor and shaving a man's face that showed up at the door. Now THAT is mercy, compassion and radical hospitality that Jesus smiles upon. It reminded us of the parable of the Good Samaritan in Luke 10 who came upon a man that had been robbed and beaten. The Good Samaritan did not pass him by and let him be. "When he saw him, he was moved with compassion, ... See more
