I would like to introduce you to one of our Hope House residents. Her name is Tiffany and she is 22 years old. She finished high school, has her fingerprint clearance card and food handlers' license.
When she found out she was having a baby, she did not receive support from her family. She has been bouncing from house to house for most of her pregnancy. Drug use and violence made most of these situations untenable.
Her baby's daddy's mother told her about Hope House, but she wasn't interested. She told me that she went to the Mormons for help. I asked her if she was Mormon and she replied, "No, but everyone here knows if you need help you go to the Mormons." When "the Mormons" also referred her to Hope House, she decided that, "Someone must be telling me to go there," so she applied for residency.
She moved in a couple of months before the baby was due. We welcomed Zander into the fold on December 28, 2016, at 7:24 am. He weighed 7 lbs 11 oz and was 21 1/2" long. When Zander was only 13 days old, he had to be flown to Phoenix Children's Hospital with a confirmed case of RSV. We reached out to our followers on Facebook and a prayer chain was formed.
I am happy to report that as of today, Zander and Tiffany are back at Hope House and everyone is doing well. Thank you for your prayers! Tiffany is committed to working through our resident steps so that she can successfully create her own safe place for Zander to reside.
It is because of your faithful and continual support that we know Tiffany and have been able to help in her time of crisis. Please consider making our ministry part of your monthly budget so that we can continue fostering hope in the lives we touch.
