In an increasingly unstable world,
hope is still the most important thing.
This month, we are sharing some of our “hope highlights” from the last 4 weeks.
May these short stories bring you hope.
BIG Things To Celebrate
Morning Brunch at the Church of God in Pryor, OK this month ☕
During our time together we celebrated our current Women in Transition teams, prepared the community for new teams, and rejoiced in God's plan for Mayes County!
God is doing amazing things in this community and we are SO grateful He continues to allow us to be a part of it 💜
A love note from WIT volunteer Nicole
"I am so grateful for my Stand in the Gap family and the opportunities God gives us to serve others. My love for our mentee Caitlin and my co-mentors Tisha & Gwen has grown so much throughout this journey.
Jesus came to serve, he came to love, he came to save, and to show us an example of what it looks like to live a humble surrendered life."
Love, Nicole | Women in Transition volunteer mentor
HUGE thank you to Life.Church South BA for their generous grant 🎉
One of our staff members captured this moment as Life Church South BA announced: "Because of the generosity in this room, we are able to provide Stand in the Gap a $30,500 grant to keep doing the great work they are doing."
Our staff member Amy Woody, Director of our Widow program said: “I am so grateful I get to see God move as our SITGM mission continues to be shared in our community.”
If your church is interested in learning more about our three programs, we'd love to see you at our next Get To Know Us event!
Come have lunch on us!

What an incredible update from Heather’s Hope Housing –
Ya know what? All of these women have Stand In The Gap mentors within our Women in Transition Program! We love watching God surround these women with resources, and relationships as they pursue Him 💜
Driving, Budgeting & Healthy groceries
This is one of our Life Launch mentees. His mentors are teaching him how to drive - always an exciting time in a young adults life!
He got some extra practice in this past weekend with our Life Launch Director Alicia as they went to the grocery store to get a few necessities. With very few grocery store options nearby, they are so grateful for the fresh, healthy food from Oasis Fresh Market!
This grocery trip also served as a teachable moment as Mile practiced budgeting and having what is needed.
We are so grateful God trusts us with this important work as He uses the healing power of safe, unpaid adult relationships that foster hope and personal agency, which are necessary for young adults to achieve independence and stability.
