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.
This month, Shannon and her five children were restored home quicker than expected.
Reuniting families who were separated by addiction and/or incarceration is why our Women in Transition program exists. There is nothing better than when mothers get healthy so they can play the role they always wanted for their kids, break the cycle, and create a legacy of hope!
This month’s Reveille Rotary meeting was a special one for Stand in the Gap because our very own Rhonda Jo Bear was presented the Rotary Star! ⭐
“Rhonda is an amazing person, a huge part of our community in all she does and is changing lives,” Tanya Davis says.
“If you have not heard her story, you need to. Pure inspiration!”
We agree, Tanya Davis!

Mother & Daughter Reunited
Melissa has not seen her mother in several years. Addiction and incarceration separated them. Through her time in our Women in Transition program, reunification has been one of Melissa's top priorities.
This month there was a celebration and Melissa's mom Beth came to town for the fun! This is what real-life restoration looks like.
Meet Volunteer Josonda
Our organization's impact would be far less without volunteers like Josonda.
Not only does she volunteer her time visiting Mabel Bassett, a women's correctional facility each month, but she also helps our program director with admin duties.
Josonda enjoys mentoring the women in our program and helping Kathy teach our Women in Transition curriculum when needed.
