We had such a GREAT turnout for our first-ever Celebration Banquet on April 9,2015.
Thank you all who came out and supported our mission and vision.
Together, we raised over $23,000!
Jordan Metzger, College & Career minister at Westwood Baptist Church and FHM Board Member, opened the night in prayer.
A delicious meal, catered by The Catering Connection, Sweetwater, TN. Owner Brandi Owens and her staff were a joy to work with.
Executive Director, Suzanne Burns, spoke briefly on the mission and vision of Foundation House.
Keynote Speaker Evie Lastra West took guests on a journey of laughter and tears as she shared her personal story of redemption and grace. A former LA gang member, two-time teen mom and now, City of Cleveland police officer, her raw honesty touched many in the room.
A great supporter of Foundation House, Yaunna Higgins, former director of New Hope Pregnancy Care Center, shared briefly about the need for a ministry like Foundation House from the perspective of the crisis pregnancy center. There are no good options for housing and support for many of these young women. Foundation House meets a definite need in Cleveland.
Harry Hickey, Board Treasurer, closed out the night with prayer and gratitude to all of our guests.
