By November 1, 2021June 22nd, 2022No Comments

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.

Moving on up!

Once released from Eddie Warrior Correctional Center, Melissa went to His House Outreach Ministries, a rehabilitation program for women newly released from prison.
From there she joined Stand in the Gap's Women in Transition program.
From there she became a leader at She Brews Coffee House in Claremore, Oklahoma.
Melissa has excelled! Those who know her say her best qualities are humility, integrity & teachable.
She is now the new Program Manager for Branch15 in Owasso, Oklahoma
We are SO proud of you, Melissa. And we celebrate your NEW embankment!

In his life forever

Barrett graduated Life Launch this month and met EVERY milestone our program sets for the young adults we serve.
…all because of his incredible mentors.
Barrett told his mentors he wants them in his life forever.
When we asked Barrett for his favorite Stand in the Gap memory from this year, he replied: “all of it”.
If you want to help another young adult, like Barrett, hit milestones and become an independent, stable adult with a bright future, consider volunteering with Stand in the Gap’s Life Launch program.
We have students waiting for a mentor like YOU to believe in them, walk alongside them and change their life forever.
