In our first several months of operations, we had the good fortune to meet people and organizations who are doing great things to help others. We recognized a need to continually review and expand the opportunities we have to help shine light on causes that perhaps don’t get as much time in the spotlight as others. We are happy to introduce four new charitable organizations we have selected to support through 621 Gifts.
Rejuvenating Women helps victims of human trafficking find a safe place to stay, provides counseling services, bible studies, and mentoring for women as they are freed from this horrific abuse. Julie Shrader, President of Rejuvenating Women, has taken on the mission to raise awareness, funds, and services necessary to remind trafficking victims that they matter, that they are cared for, and that they deserve a better life. We hope that you will take the time to get to know more about Rejuvenating Women and all they do in this relatively little known arena.
HEALing Embrace, founded by Jennifer Sommer and Shawna Hoffman, exists to provide services to families who have suffered the loss of a child through pregnancy or infant loss. Their mission, Helping Everyone After Loss (HEAL), raises awareness of infant loss, provides grief counseling, helps to pay for funeral expenses and medical expenses, and assists with postpartum care. Jennifer and Shawna, both touched by loss, have an intimate understanding of the needs women have after enduring such a crisis. It is their goal to raise awareness and funds to help women heal at such a heartbreaking time.
Chariots4Hope assists individuals and families without financial means to acquire a vehicle. This crucial ministry allows independence, self-sufficiency, and the ability to obtain and maintain employment for those who receive a car. Founders, Jason and Michelle Hurt, accept vehicle donations from their community and restore or repair them into good working condition to bless the people who will drive them. Chariots4Hope works with community partners for referrals to those in need, and for the repairs of the vehicles. Theirs is a true community effort.
