"Mom on the Run"

Unfortunately, her story is not unique. She was running from an ex-husband who had brutally beat her, almost to the point of death. Women like her tend to be make-up artists. Trying their best to camouflage bruises on their eyes, noses, and cheeks from the last altercation that was deemed ‘their fault.’

"Conned Mom..."

This widowed mom thought she had met the greatest guy at a church function.  Trusting that this man was a man of faith, she allowed herself to trust him completely.  After just a few months, he proposed.  It seemed her dreams were coming true. 

Then, one day, her worst fears came to fruition….

"I wish I found Encompass Sooner!"

Three days before Christmas in 2018, without warning, I was let go from my job. My wife had lost her job just two weeks earlier. This was Christmas!  The most expensive time of the year!  Who lets people go at Christmas?! We were going along just fine, then BAM! BAM!!  Presents were bought. The fridge was full. But bills would come due in just a week. We were already struggling with the thought of one income… I mean, who hires in December?

"To The Penny"

I have known the great folks at Encompass Ministries for many years. Sometimes as a client, sometimes as a donor, all the time as a friend. It was early in 2007 when I felt I was at the bottom.  I needed help and I needed food. My husband was in the military and was deployed most of the time. Essentially, I was a single mother, raising two small boys…

 

"On My Feet"

My wife, daughter, and I had been living in the west for quite some time. We knew that it was not a good fit for us professionally, mentally, or spiritually. So, we made the snap decision to move back to Georgia to be around a supportive team of friends and family.

 

Rags to Really?!

Meet Caroline. A middle-aged woman who is wife and mother to three kids, one with autism. For the last many years she has been the full-time caregiver for her mother who also lived with her family. Not an uncommon story.

To the world you may be one person; but to one person you may be the world. - Dr Seuss

Friday February 19th, we had our second Bethesda event of the year! We were able to meet new people and see their smiles as they took home fresh produce, breads, blankets and more while they took advantage of the Free Bethesda Mobile Clinic! 

We wanted to give a special shout out to Episcopal Church of the Annunciation for volunteering their time with us! A HUGE shout out to Wanda and Janet who kept warm smiles on their faces during the cold and breezy afternoon! Amazing dedication!
