Healing Springs (ILP)

 

Healing Springs Independent Living Program is an extention of The Well and is for young women ages 18-25 who need support as they transition into adulthood.  Our mission is to provide young women with safe and affordable housing, life skills, therapy and biblical instruction so they can achieve independence and make meaningful contributions to society.

 

Oakland Hope

 

Oakland Hope was originally inspired by Margie Loveland, our church receptionist and miracle worker.  Back in 2009 she asked our pastor if she could gather some food items and store them in a small closet for those in need.  The request was granted.  Soon after, Jim Geers, a long time employee of Home Depot and Lowes was in need because of the recession.  After receiving help from the small pantry, he put his skills to use and expanded the pantry.  Soon we were feeding lots of folks.

 

Eventually, Pastor Rick shared an idea with a network of churches he had formed.  He asked, "Why can't we do something together that will feed all of Waterford?"  The idea was born out of a God-given desire to come alongside our community with more than just words.

 

We looked at what God had already done in Macomb County through the effective ministry of Macomb Hope and in Detroit with Focus Hope and we were encouraged to press on.  After many ebbs and flows, executive director Norma Okonski was asked to come on board and lead the organization.  And lead she did.  After forming a board of directors and gaining non-profit status, Oakland Hope was born.  

 

The scripture says, "Do not despise the day of small things".  From a little closet with some beans and rice to a multi-million dollar facility in Pontiac, MI that includes a large thrift store which funds a beautiful client-choice food pantry.  For more info, visit oaklandhope.org
