Director’s Note…

3 days!!! In just 3 days, we will celebrate the ribbon-cutting at our new location at 428 E Bell Street, and I hope many of you will be present to celebrate with us on Sunday afternoon!

We will be celebrating not only bricks and mortar, but the efforts of hundreds of people and thousands of hours of work that made this day possible.

We celebrate hundreds of volunteers, from those very first four to the hundreds who have served since. We celebrate all the work of the LIFE team, a couple dozen men and women who serve alongside us daily, to accomplish the work of this organization.

We celebrate the courage, faith and expertise of those very first board members to the highly-talented group who help lead the organization today.

We celebrate the donors who have contributed unselfishly from day one, and those who continue to support the mission financially today. We celebrate those who have recently made new financial commitments, as well as the overwhelming generosity of those who have given to make this new location a reality.

We celebrate the renewed lives of the clients whose stories have been forever changed because of the efforts of people who believe that “with God nothing shall be impossible.” We celebrate our clients’ days clean and sober. We celebrate the families that have been reunited, and made stronger. We celebrate dreams for higher education come true. We celebrate good jobs, reinstated drivers privileges, and safe homes where children thrive and grow healthy, as parents learn how to parent well.

We celebrate the work of our counselors, our case workers, mentors, and program directors. We celebrate the work of those behind the scenes: the administrative staff, the transportation team, the volunteer coordinator who works to interview and place the ever-growing number of people wanting to get involved.

We celebrate the commitment of our teaching staff: many times these gracious people provide the first impression of the organization to our clients, helping build and fortify that initial, all-important relationship of trust.

We celebrate goals reached, and we celebrate new goals. With the completion of renovations at Bell Street, Project Braveheart, our men’s initiative is ready to launch men’s temporary/emergency shelter. Three men have already applied for the four spaces that will be available. Michael Jordan and his team have been working for months to bring policy together for this new program. We anticipate hard work ahead, and believe God will give us strength, wisdom, and the resources to accomplish whatever He directs us to do.

I invite you to come celebrate ALL OF THIS AND MORE this Sunday, November 2, 2014! You can come by anytime between 2:00 and 4:00, but the ribbon-cutting ceremony will start at 2:00 at 428 E Bell Street, Murfreesboro, the new home of Doors of Hope.



Major Milestones for Project Braveheart

The new facility for Doors of Hope is adding a whole new dimension of ministry to Project Braveheart. The second floor will serve as temporary housing for up to four Braveheart graduates. This will be a huge benefit to the men, just as housing has been for the women of Doors of Hope.

We are also celebrating the first anniversary of our Thursday night small group meetings to help guide and support Braveheart graduates after their release.  We’re hosting a special celebration dinner on Thursday, November 6th at pm for all past Braveheart graduates and mentors.  It will also be a great time to check out the new facility at 428 E. Bell St.  If you’d like to come, please RSVP by emailing projectbraveheartmboro@gmail.com.

The next day we will be graduating around 16-20 men at the Rutherford County Correctional Work Center.  Their feedback from the class included this comment: “It has really changed the way I’ve thought about life in general… and I would never have felt this way if it was not for this class.”

We will be starting a new 12-week series soon and assigning mentors a few weeks later. If you or anyone you know would like to help guide others in being transformed by the renewing of their minds, please let us know at the email address shown above.
