I grew up in a family that experienced multi-generational poverty. It seems like it was just a few years ago that my children and I needed help to break the cycle. With the assistance of the local community, we overcame homelessness, domestic abuse, and extreme poverty. The people God put into our lives were of a higher social-economic level. They supported my family and gave me a “seat at the table” during the toughest times of our lives. It was in this community where I put together a toolbox of skills that allowed me to provide for myself and my children emotionally, spiritually, and financially.

 

I wanted to help others in a similar situation. So, in 2014, I began collecting diapers for impoverished mothers. I soon realized the need in the community was much bigger and the Lord had something much greater planned. With God’s help, I developed a program that would address the physical, spiritual, and emotional needs of families living in poverty.  Today, Bright Futures for Women and Children (formerly Pamper Lake Highlands) is a multi-generational ministry serving families in Northeast Dallas.

 

Bright Futures for Women and Children has grown remarkably since 2014, and I could not be more grateful for each person that has played a part in it becoming what it is today. We will continue to show Jesus’ love by bridging the gap between social classes and equipping others to break the cycle of multi-generational poverty.
