BRINGING HOPE TO THE COMMUNITY
Serving the Community by Impacting one Family at a Time
How do you respond when life happens? What do you do when your world is turned upside down? Well, for some of us, we turn to those things that we think will ease the pain. It's our way of coping with our problems. We turn to drugs. We start drinking. We turn to bad relationships. In desperation, we start making bad decisions. Some of us try to run away from the problem, while others try to deal with it alone. When life happens, we get depressed, devastated by the news, and even feel hopeless. If we don't deal with adversities properly, with support and encouragement from others, we end up making matters worse. This can and will affect our families, our communities, our cities, and this world.
Hi. My name is Rhovonda Brown and I am honored to be the president and CEO of The Pillar of Hope, Inc. I am the executive director of The Pillar of Hope Community Development Center (TPOHCDC) that will be planted in my hometown, Houston Texas. I was born and raised in Houston where I lived most of my life in Trinity Garden. I have experienced setbacks, many challenges and misfortunes: being a victim of child abuse, witnessing the murder of my mother and the sudden death of my grandmother, and losing my oldest brother to AIDS. I have battled with alcohol, insecurities, self-esteem, depression, loneliness, to say the least. My journey has not always been easy nor pretty; yet, through it all, I have found hope and strength to overcome. Right now, I’m working on a huge project that will allow me to help others find hope and strength to overcome whatever battle they may face.
TPOHCDC will bring encouragement, support, and hope to a needy community. This project is epic, so great that I cannot do it alone. I need your support. Will you help me?
“At the end of the day, it's not about what you have or even what you've accomplished. It's about who you've lifted up. Who you've made better. It's about what you've given back.”
Help bring hope to the teenager who is being physically and sexually abused. Bring hope to the son who has lost his way to peer pressure, drugs and alcohol. Let’s bring hope to the mother who just received the awful news that her baby was killed by a drunk driver. TPOHCDC will provide Life Skills education that will guide families through challenging times.
Help bring hope to a father who is unable provide food for his family. TPOHCDC will offer a food pantry that will distribute nonperishable food items once a month to those in need.
I know you're wondering, how in the world can you help. Well, you can! You and I can bring hope to a community that truly needs it.
