My involvement with New Horizons House began when a member of the board for New Horizons House gave a presentation at our church. As a mother, grandmother and mother-in-law I was so moved by the thought of my girls and how I would do anything to protect them from harm. I decided to have an event to help raise funds. The event was successful and during the event I was asked many questions. The questions made me delve deeper into the concept of NHH, what the girls went through, how they were rescued, and what was the government doing to help. These answers for the questions (and much more) were available on the website and I was happy to be able to share them with my guests at the fundraiser. Something else happened during my research. A fire was lit to help bring about a change in these girls lives!
My background is in Christian Counseling. I have seen the benefit of accessible and effective counseling. This is one of the many things provided to the girls at New Horizons House. The powerful impact is immediately felt when there is someone there to give you hope, security, and tools to work with as you process what you have been through and where you want to go. I have seen the fearful, sad faces of girls when they arrive and those same faces, following counseling and support, with smiles and trusting eyes!
