The long-awaited and well-deserved day to move into their own home finally came to a formerly homeless couple, Jason and Samantha. They graduated from Orange County Rescue Mission’s Village of Hope, saved money, and were about to move into their own apartment. But, they had lost almost everything when they were homeless. There was no storage room full of furnishings and household items ready to fill their apartment.
That is why I am so grateful for our new partnership with Deed and Truth. Founded by Dan and Betty Anderson to “fill important gaps…for those who need it most,” the couple and their fellow volunteers began collecting and storing furniture, not for resale purposes, but to bless those in need.
So now, when an individual or family has graduated from the Rescue Mission and is ready to move out, Deed and Truth supply them with furnishings, Extreme Makeover-style! Volunteers survey the apartment, choose furniture sets, haul it all into the apartment, and decorate it all to surprise the family.
Then the family enters their new apartment, that Truth and Deed turned into a home. In the last six months, fourteen households were furnished and decorated!
But , Jason and Samantha’s video of their apartment reveal tells the story best. Click here, and be blessed by seeing God’s goodness given through others!
