Since reopening, shelter hosts have repeatedly mentioned that there is something special about the shelter, and it isn’t the new furniture layout. Hosts have described the shelter as having “an exciting new feel to it,” “a different place” where the women “seem genuinely motivated to pursue their goals.” We agree and believe wholeheartedly that it’s because the Spirit of God is alive and at work in the shelter, producing hope in the lives of the women staying there.

We are excited to share our very first success story: Head Start of Yamhill County recently welcomed back shelter guest “Meredith” as a volunteer! Meredith considers this opportunity an enormous answer to prayer and is eager to get back in the swing of doing what she loves most.

 “Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.”- Isaiah 43:19
