Hope – Time Is of the Essence

Hope is not only a name of a person, but it also means, desiring a positive outcome that will bring change. As a working single mom, Hope has had to overcome many obstacles and challenges. It was her persistence to work through them is what helped Hope regain custody of her two children. She says, “it was the tragic loss of losing custody of my children that brought me to know what was most important.”

Since gaining custody of her children, Hope had been using public transportation to transport them to daycare and travel for work. By now owning her own vehicle, time has been freed up to spend with her children rather than having to waste time traveling on buses!

Hope came to Hands of The Carpenter (Hands) through a referral from Open Door Ministries. In July of 2021, Hands placed her with a 2004 Honda Civic. As a single mom who works full-time and has two children to care for, she has learned “time is of the essence.”

Hope is thankful for the community support she’s received from Open Door and Hands for the vehicle placement she and her kiddos can safely enjoy.


Thanks to everyone who helps Hands of The Carpenter provide hope through transportation! Your generosity via gifts, car donations, volunteer hours and more allow us to reach more local women in need.
