Redeeming Families: Helping Single Parents

Many of you may not know this; but, I, Ryan, finished my Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy last August (2017).  I had the pleasure of walking for the first time ever in any of my college graduation commencements two weeks ago.  I have to admit to a certain amount of exuberance as I entered a football stadium filled with about 40,000 graduates, faculty, and family members.  It was not the best of days in terms of the weather; I had to sit in the rain for six hours from the time we lined up as graduates to walk into the stadium until the commencement was finished.  Despite the rain, everyone was smiling, laughing, and honored to be in attendance for such a once in a life time event.  I do not want this post to sound like it is about me, but I felt it necessary for those of you reading this to understand the context of my thoughts for this blog.  At my commencement, the key note speaker was former President of the United States Jimmy Carter; at 94 years of age, he is still a very able speaker.  I could share a lot about my impressions of President Carter’s speech, but the speaker from my commenceent that came to mind as I write this blog was United States HUD Secretary Ben Carson.

Ben Carson’s mother was a single mother.  During Mr. Carson’s introduction at the commencement, we were informed that she worked several different jobs to provide for an opportunity for her children to go to school and do better in life than she was able to do on her own.  In case you do not know Ben Carson’s story, he became a well known neurosurgeon who developed procedures for separating conjoined twins, operating on babies still in the womb, and was the youngest chief of pediatric neurosurgery in the country at the age of 33.  This was all before he became known in the area of politics.  I share this long introduction not because I want each of you to become Ben Carson fans; I share this because Ben Carson’s mother exemplifies the highest percentage of phone calls that Hope4Healing receives, young, single, mothers.  Most of the single mothers who contact Hope4Healing are in the lower socioeconomic status and women of color.  Mrs. Carson struggled with depression, suicidal ideations, and was the mother to Ben who admits that he was a hot tempered teenager often getting into fights.

 

As a therapist, I work with quite a few single parents (mostly mothers) who struggle in the same way that Ben Carson’s mother struggled.  They have their own demons that they fight against not just daily, but often times hourly.  Many times these single parents feel like inadequate supports for their children.  They won’t give up, but they often times push themselves to the point of exhaustion and relapse.  It is true sometimes, even most of the time they have had past brushes with the law; and now they must work fulltime, obey the rules put upon them by society or possibly the court, and be a strong support for their children.  Just like Ben Carson, many times their children are difficult to raise and have their own brushes with the law.

So let me address the question that some of you might be asking, “Why should I care?”  Ben Carson’s mother was able to pull through and provide for her family due to the support of those who cared for her.  Ben Carson’s story might have been drastically different if not for his mother’s sister and brother-in-law and her faith.  This is exactly the type of support we seek to provide through our friendship partners at Hope4Healing.  By encouraging and lifting up these single parents, we have the hope that their children will rise up and do great things; we also have the hope that these single parents will rise up and do great things.  Too often, we see society fall on one of two sides regarding this issues of helping single parents from low socioeconomic and/or minority homes.  On the hand we want to give families like the ones I have been describing everything taking away their dignity and ability to rise up; and on the other hand, we want say that they deserve what has happened to them and they need to struggle through it.  In reality, what most of these single parents need is a kind word, someone to encourage them, and/or someone who wants to see them succeed.  Our friendship partners fill that role effectively; and we are so privileged to be able to partner with our friendship partners to help not just single family homes, but all who call Hope4Healing for help.  To find out more about the role of a friendship partner, to get involved, or find a friendship partner near you, give us a call Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at 855-584-HOPE (4673).  Would you also consider supporting us financially with a $25.00 or more donation?  Your financial support allows us to continue providing for these single mothers and their children by both helping us find their physical needs and their need for friendship.

 

Thank you,

Working for you!

We have been receiving quite a few comments lately from some of our partners about the benefits Hope4Healing is bringing to their programs, agencies, or organizations.  It is my goal to share these stories with you in the hopes that they will help all of us better understand how Hope4Healing can be tailored to meet your specific goals for your business, agency, or ministry.  This story shared by one of our Hope4Healing Friendship Church Partners shows just how important finding a friendship partner and a place to belong can be when a person is going through what seems like an impossible situation.

A Victory for Hope for Healing by B. B.

Hope4Healing (H4H) is not a humanitarian organization, rather it is a Christian organization, the one thing about which we must never be complacent!  We define success in terms of the Great Commission, a response to Jesus’ challenge to make Disciples.  Every Person in Need (PIN) to whom we respond as a Christian Friend is a potential opportunity to establish a relationship from which we may earn the right to share the Gospel.  It won’t happen with every PIN but creating opportunities to share the Gospel is what distinguishes H4H from non-Christian Humanitarian organizations.

 

I’d like to share a true H4H success story.  Information that might identify the PIN has been changed, but the story remains the same.

 

Chuck moved a couple years ago from a neighboring state to the Cedar Valley with his wife Anne and son Tommy to make a better life for them all.  Anne passed the bar and as an attorney provided the brunt of the family’s income and paid the bills.  Chuck worked a seasonal job which paid well only during the high season.  Tommy was flourishing, he’d substantially improved his grades and become a star on the basketball team.  They’d struggled, maxing out credit cards to get on their feet, but things were getting better, until suddenly everything changed.

 

Chuck came home one day to find that Anne had unexpectedly moved out, taking most of their belongings with her.  It was a surprise to Chuck and Tommy.  She’d taken the furniture and depleted their bank account.  Chuck and Tommy were devastated, emotionally and financially.  They had $50 in cash between them.  They soon discovered that Anne must have been planning her move for some time as she hadn’t paid the rent, utility bill or car payments in several months.  Chuck’s truck and Tommy’s car were repossessed the following week and the landlord initiated eviction proceedings.  It was the off-season and Chuck was working only a day or two per week.  Chuck had no friends or family to whom he could turn for help.

Chuck contacted H4H for help.  He and Tommy needed food and had only two weeks before they would be evicted.  Chuck had never been in a situation like this and was extremely distraught about the impact on his son.  A H4H Friendship Team member got involved and connected the men with community meals and the Food Bank.  Unfortunately, they found themselves so deeply in debt that the Friendship Team member was unable to locate an organization in the Cedar Valley willing to help with rent or utilities.  Chuck was understandably upset, facing the possibility that he and his son may soon be living in a shelter. 

 

The H4H member felt powerless, he’d exhausted available local resources and hadn’t been able to find a solution for Chuck.  He realized all he could do was be a Christion friend, to listen to Chuck and pray with him. 

 

Over the course of the next two weeks, Chuck was able to find a basketball team friend whose parents were willing to temporarily take in Tommy so he wouldn’t have to leave school.  Chuck’s prior employer was willing to reinstate his former position and Chuck realized he’d have to temporarily leave the state to reestablish himself financially before returning to the Cedar Valley to reunite with Tommy.

 

After many tearful conversations and prayer sessions over two weeks, the Christian friend asked if he could share the Gospel with Chuck.  Chuck was skeptical, but respectful enough of the relationship he’d established with his new Christian friend to listen.

Several days passed before Chuck called his new Christian friend.  He told him that the situation had overwhelmed him and he’d totally broken down the night before, fallen to his knees and cried out to Jesus for help.  He’d prayed the prayer his Christian friend had taught him, asking Jesus Christ to take control of his life.  At this time, Chuck is still out of state and Tommy is living with his friend’s family.

 

On one hand, this seems like a story where the situation was so dire that H4H was unable to locate the resources to help, but God had another plan.  God used the Christian friend to achieve an incredible victory for the Kingdom and Chuck’s life will never be the same!  Hallelujah Hope4Healing!

 

By B. B.

Our friendship partners provide a lot of different opportunities for the person/family in need.  They provide encouragement, a sense of belonging, friendship, and for the spiritual needs of those we serve.  Hope4Healing never assigns a church partner; the person/family in need picks their friendship partner.  It is exciting to see the growth that can take in the life of individuals and families as they develop a strong relationship with their friendship partners.

We are still in the middle of our 2018 fundraising campaign.  If you would like to be a part of bringing positive change to the life of individuals and families in your community and across the state of Iowa, would you please partner with us.  You can partner with us by signing up to receive or newsletter.  You can partner with us by adding your church, business, agency, or organization to the network to be a part of a team that helps others.  You can also give a financial gift to help us continue to provide greater access to services to those in need.  Would you consider becoming a monthly partner at $20.00 a month?  Or, maybe you would like to make a difference in one person or family’s life; it takes roughly $150.00 to help one individual or family with their request.  Would you help one family with a $150.00 gift?

Thank you

Finding the Perfect Fit!

I say it often, but only because it is true; we have the greatest partners working with us to help individuals and families in need across the state of Iowa.  Here is another great example of how our church partners are making a difference for those needing encouragement, compassion, and kindness. (The names have been changed to respect the confidentiality of those we serve.)

Hi Hope4Healing,

After Hope4Healing invited our church to be a support partner for Sue, she came in to visit me at the church.  You probably know her situation better than I do, but she is under extreme financial and emotional hardship due to illness, loss of job, broken down car, out of control adult kids, etc…

We started by trying to assure her that God still loves her and so does her new church family.  During that first visit, I gave her a fuel voucher so she could get gas for her car, a gift card to Aldi’s so she could pick up some groceries, and we also helped her make her rent payment so she had a place to live.  I also prayed with her and encouraged her to get involve with our activities at the church so she could meet people that would love and encourage her.  One of our ladies gave Deb a call and invited her to a small group Christmas party, but Sue decided not to go because she didn’t feel well.  I just talked with Sue and she informed me her car is not dependable and it was recommended that she ask me about possibly helping with bus passes.  I told her, “Absolutely, we will help, and that your church family wants to help you through the tough times.”  I will be dropping off a book of 20 bus passes at her apartment in the morning.  She also said her winter coat needs the zipper repaired and so I will pick it up and I know a couple ladies here at church that might be able to repair her coat.  I also suggested she visit the Caring Center on Main Street to see if they have any winter coats or possibly other items that she may need for FREE!  She also said she was concerned about getting to doctor’s appointments that are in Ames or Des Moines, and I informed her that our church has a ministry that makes sure people that do not have transportation are given rides to their appointments, and the people that provide rides for them are also “prayer warriors” that pray with the individual before they go in to their appointment.  The church will also help with “copays” if there is a need for financial help.

I again encouraged her to get involved with church activities because she needs a church “family” and needs to make connections with other Christians.  She admits she needs to get involved in a small group or our Wednesday night activities and weekend services.  I told her we will keep praying for her (and her family) and Sue said she definitely needs the prayer support and appreciates all that the church has done already.

Thank you, T

Obviously, not every church is able to help in the ways that are described in this letter; but this church provided something that every church can provide: prayer, encouragement, and a family.  As you consider the challenges that this lady is facing, even if the church didn’t have the means to help her out financially, don’t you think her need for friendship, encouragement, emotional support, and prayer would have been even more important?  Many times we have the tendency to compare ourselves in ways that are unfair; that is why we are encouraged to consider our skills, strengths, and gifts and how we might use them.  If all we do is look at how we are different, we will never measure up.  Our Hope4Healing partners understand that we each have a role to play, and that the network is designed to help find others to fill in the gaps.  Have you ever considered the how your skills, talents, or gifts might be used to help those in need?  Hope4Healing can help you find your niche!  Contact us at 855-584-HOPE (4673) or email us at Info@hope4healingquakerdale.net to learn more, or to set up a time for use make a presentation to your small group, church, business, or agency.  Do you enjoy hearing stories like these?  Signup for our newsletter in the link below, and receive a monthly newsletter update in your inbox!

And Now, A Message from our Partners

From time to time, we receive comments from one of our partners.  We never cease to be amazed by the efforts of our partners as they are the hands and feet in helping those in need; and we are humbled to hear their kind comments about their experiences with Hope4Healing.  A recent piece of correspondence that we received stood out, because it was hand written and mailed to us.  In our day and age of technology, it is a special treat to receive a hand written note and it speaks to the time and care the writer spent in sending us this note:

            My experience with Hope4Healing has been a positive one.  I became involved when my church, Ferguson Bible Church, partnered with Hope4Healing and initiated an outreach to my recently widowed neighbor.  She had no hope of earning an income or paying her bills.

            Guided by Hope4Healing, I, as her advocate, became knowledgeable of local resources and how they could help.  Hope4Healing provided us with information so we could obtain the legal documents needed to complete the applications for disability income, utility assistance, and affordable housing.

            It is clear to me that many people in need should have an advocate.  They need someone to assist them with confusing paperwork, to provide transportation to appointments, and to offer prayer and encouragement.  Hope4Healing does a great job of providing for these needs and I feel blessed to be part of the effort.

L Cermak.

So many times in my life, I did not know how to help or where to turn for help.  This letter shows the blessings we all can experience through partnering together to help those in need.  Hope4Healing is fortunate to have wonderful churches like the Ferguson Bible Church congregation, and individuals like L. Cermak to help us provide hope and healing!  The note sent to us reminded me of the wisdom stated in Proverbs 31:8-9 (NKJV) about being an advocate:

Open your mouth for the speechless,
In the cause of all who are appointed to die.
Open your mouth, judge righteously,
And plead the cause of the poor and needy.

To learn more about how you, your church, community group, business, or agency can advocate for your family, friends, and/or community or to schedule a presentation, give us a call at 855-584-HOPE (4673) or email us at Info@hope4healingquakerdale.net.  We currently are in the middle of our 2018 fundraising campaign; as you know, we cannot provide these services without the financial support of individuals like you.  We have currently raised $6,714.00 toward our $52,500.00 annual need; we also have pledges in the amount of $18,750.00 toward our overall goal.  In other words, we have raised $25,464.00 toward our $52,500.00 annual need for 2018.  We are asking that you partner with us in advocating for those who cannot advocate for

themselves.  Our goal for the second quarter of 2018 is to raise $17,577.00 to cover the mission support portion of our budget.  Your gift of any amount would be appreciated.  Would you consider partnering with us by making a $25.00 donation today; or, would you be one of 65 partners to commit to joining us at the $30.00/month level through the rest of 2018 (9 months).  As always, your support would be appreciated, and is tax deductable.

Thank you,

Little Faith, Great Partners

Recently, I posted this story to Facebook.  When have you faced times of little faith only to be surprised in a big way?

How was your Friday afternoon? I have had a good, but long week; and then, I get a call this afternoon from a couple who is homeless and stranded in a town where there is no homeless shelter. There is a shelter an hour away that has room, but only if they can get there. I have to admit, I sent out a message looking for transportation for this couple discouraged that so late on a Friday no one will be available to help. Less than a minute after I hit send on the email, a Hope4Healing partner said they were driving from the town where the couple was stranded to the town where the shelter is, and he would be glad to give them a ride. I was convicted of my lack of faith, but oh so glad that this couple didn’t end up sleeping in the cold with snow on the way. We have such great partners here at Hope4Healing!!! What would have happened if Hope4Healing didn’t exist? To help us help people like this couple, would you consider donating to Hope4Healing. Your gift for as little as $10.00 could help us make all the difference in the life of a person or family in need!

What Can You do with an Old TV Stand?

 

I want to share with you an email that we received from one of our Hope4Healing Partners.  You may recall our article last month discussing the sewing machine that was found by Catholic Charities of Waterloo for the Nunga Family.  Well, I want you to read and understand how an old TV stand made the difference in giving someone a feeling of belonging while allowing someone else the opportunity to pay it forward!
“I told/shared the photo/link of Mita with Agnes.  She in turn sent it onto her friend in Des Moines.  The friend posted the following on her facebook page.

 

Throwback Thursday to approximately 2004 when I got a message from my friend Nicole asking if I wanted her to pick up a $40 treadle sewing machine she found. I already had one in good working order, but who could pass on such a great deal?! That treadle sewing machine made a lovely tv stand for many years, being moved six times.

Fast forward to about 6 weeks ago when my friend Agnes posted that she was looking for a treadle sewing machine for a client. Someone who actually was going to use it. A treadle was desired because an electric machine was too intimidating for this client to use. The time had come to part with my $40 tv stand to be put to good use by someone who really needed it.

Today I got to learn more of the story. I’m not a crier. But this story brought tears to my eyes. If you’re so inclined, read about why this family is in the US: https://hope4healingquakerdale.net/2018/01/facing-giants/

And then you can see how this machine is being used:
https://hope4healingquakerdale.net/2018/01/facing-giants-2/

Many thanks to Deacon Jeff for coming to Des Moines to pick up the machine and finding someone to give it a thorough once-over to ensure it was in good working order before going to its new home.

This is the kind of story that would have prompted me to call my good friend Wade. He would love that someone is taking a piece of history and using it in their daily life. But since I can’t share this story with him, I’m hoping his sister-in-law Marcy will appreciate it for him, especially considering her passion for helping refugees.

My message to you is this: give what you are able. It may be your money. It may be your time. It may be your old tv stand. But there is joy in giving. And it warms my heart to know this old sewing machine has found new life.”

 I cannot conceive of a more appropriate way to tell the story of how Hope4Healing impacts lives.  I dare say that everyone musters up a smile when reading this story.  It is my prayer that you follow the advice of the author of the email and “give what you are able.”  We need friends to who are willing to partner with us to give what they can; maybe you can give financially, of your time, or just your old TV stand.  Please give today!

Sincerely,

 

Ryan Keller

Executive Director

Checkout what’s new!!!

As most of you probably know by now, Hope4Healing has made the transition from being under the leadership of Quakerdale; and now we are our own not for profit organization now known as just “Hope4Healing.”  With this transition, we have also needed to make some changes to officially stand on our own; therefore, we now have a new look, address, phone, and email.

If you have questions concerning Hope4Healing in general, please use the email address info@hope4healingquakerdale.net.  Our new phone number is a toll free number: 855-584-HOPE (4673).  When you call our new number, you will hear the prompts; but to make a new request or talk to staff who is answering the phones just press “0.”  Someone is available to answer the phone M-Fr from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.; sometimes we get busy, so you can leave a voicemail and we will call you back.  Finally, our mailing address has changed to P.O. Box 48 Gladbrook, IA 50635.

We look forward to “…connecting people with the resources they need to live life to its fullest…” in 2018.  Although our look and contact information has changed, we are still here to help those individuals or families in need across the state of Iowa.  To make a request for yourself or someone you care about, you can email us at Info@Hope4HealingQuakerdale.net, call us toll free at 855-584-HOPE (4673), or fill out this request form link.

Don’t forget, we still are looking for individuals, groups, businesses, or organizations who would like to help us make a difference in the lives of others through making a financial contribution to Hope4Healing’s 2018 Fundraising Campaign.  Could you partner with us by making a one time $10.00 donation?  Maybe you have the ability to partner with us with an ongoing monthly gift?  We would appreciate your partnership in helping others in 2018.  As always, thank you for your involvement with Hope4Healing!  These changes will help us to continue serving others throughout 2018 and beyond.

Update on the Story of Facing Giants: A Story of Persistence, Grace, and a New Life

If you haven’t read our original article on facing the giants, I want to warn you about spoilers!!!  You may want to read the first article before reading this article.

 

If you had faced the persecution that the Nunga family has faced, (beatings, shootings, fleeing your home country, etc…) would you feel compelled to donate your time to help others?  One of the items that the Nunga family requested help in finding was a treadle sewing machine for Mita.  Through the help of two wonderful staff members at Catholic Charities in Waterloo, Mita now has the treadle sewing machine she was looking for.  We want Sister Rita and Deacon Jeff know how much we appreciate their selflessness in answering Mita request.  The picture below shows how much Mita appreciates the sewing machine as well.

To answer my original question, Mita has now started making bags, repairing clothing, and doing other jobs with her sewing machine to pay it forward.  As stated in the original article, the Nungas are not allowed to receive payment for work due to the rules of seeking asylum, but this family is not willing to just sit and do nothing.  They continue to look for ways to help out and help others while they wait for a decision on their asylum application.  It is not too late for you to help out this family by making a donation or even buying a gift card for them to get items they need.  You can click the link to make a donation, or call Hope4Healing at 855-584-HOPE (4673) for details on giving a gift card.

Thank you,

 

Ryan Keller, Executive Director.

            We know that we have some of the best partners in world supporting Hope4Healing!  One of those great partners is the Social Concerns committee from Saint Patrick’s Catholic Church in Cedar Falls Iowa.  Saint Patrick’s Catholic Church’s Social Concerns Committee has a wonderful way of supporting organizations in the Cedar Falls and Waterloo area by taking a special collection on behalf of those organizations they believe provide a valuable service.  Hope4Healing is humbled that we have been chosen by the Social Concern’s Committee to be the recipient of this special collection in January for the amount of $453.60.  This makes Saint Patrick’s Church and their Social Concern’s Committee our first $40.00 a month partner for 2018.  Thank you to Tim Boler the Social Concern Chair, and Saint Patrick’s Catholic Church for supporting us here at Hope4Healing!
