Harvest Of Clothing

Harvest of Clothing




October 1 - 30

The clothes that are making it hard to close your dresser drawers can make a huge difference for our neighbors in need, like Jasmine...



  Jasmine's past was filled with a series of unfortunate circumstances     and irresponsible choices that ultimately left her homeless...with 3         young children and a baby on the way. 

  At her lowest point, she found a beacon of hope at Victory Mission.      She was welcomed to Victory House and her needs for food, shelter,    prenatal care, and love were met. She now leads an independent life!

 "Thanks to the Mission, I found God's love, got my GED, learned how  to overcome my bad habits, and become a responsible parent."
