About 10 years ago in the middle of the night I was awakened by a dream. It was one of those dreams that felt SO REAL! It was a simple dream in which a voice said to me "FAITH, FAMILY, EDUCATION AND EMPLOYMENT". Not sure what to make of it I went back to sleep and tried to forget about it, but those words stayed with me. Over the next several weeks I began to think that maybe strengthening these for things in people could lead to a successful life. I began thinking that these four principles of living could help keep families together, deepen our relationships with each other and help build stronger communities. At that time I didn't know how to implement such a broad vision so i buried it in my mind and tried to forget about it. But God had other plans......
Over the next 10 years my career has taken me many places, from working to fight food insecurity at the Houston Food Bank and Meals on Wheels to supporting adults with intellectual disabilities at Nixon Adult Day Care and Mosaic. I understand now that a seed was planted years ago that took time for me to grow into. Cornerstone Family Resource Center exists to strengthen lives through faith, family, education and employment. We do this by supporting struggling families with their basic needs, educational needs and employment needs.
As 2021 comes to a close I want to offer my most sincere thanks to everyone that has supported our mission. Whether you donated $1000, $10 or simply gave words of encouragement your support has meant the world to me. 2022 promises to be an exciting year and I can't wait to share our successes with you!
Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!!
