An evening of dining, laughter and love with YOU in mind.
Ushered Into Healing was incorporated in 2014. Since then we have been able to host memorable events accommodating both men and women. Notably we organized a gala event catering to women from a local shelter.
They were served a 3-course meal, signature virgin cocktails, along with gift bags filled with personal keepsakes and elegant toiletries.
Testimonials were shared to empower and give hope for a brighter future. We laughed some. We cried some. Bonds were forged leaving a lasting impression on both the women and all who were privileged to participate and serve such a remarkable group of people.
Love In Action
Gentlemen were chauffeured to receive fresh grooming at a reputable barbershop.
Later they enjoyed fellowship, laughter and love while being served a variety of appetizing food choices.
Each individual was given a coat along with toiletry bags to fit their needs.
I See YOU
Making the invisible… Visible
“I See YOU” campaign is designed to bring awareness to the homeless epidemic by taking an inward look at ourselves. How often do we look the other way when approached by someone in need? Do we pass judgments?
Ushered Into Healing looks for the opportunity to share, engage and ultimately show love towards those in the predicament of homelessness. Love has the POWER to heal, uplift and rebuild. I once offered a homeless woman money and she declined.
I offered her food. She said, “I’m okay.” I then asked, “Can I give you a hug?” Looking stunned she outstretched her arms. As I embraced her, the tears began to flow. “Do you know how long it’s been since someone has touched me?’
In an instant I felt her sorrow and joy all at once. That moment forever changed my perspective and view of the world around me. Everyone needs love.
Ushered Into Healing Presents A Fresh Start…
Since our last event, Ushered Into Healing has established a continuing relationship with the men and women of the local shelters.
Our intent is to continue presenting them with experiences that will rejuvenate their self-image along with providing a well-needed break from the monotony and trials that are associated with shelter living.
Ushered Into Healing was excited to present, A Fresh Start. This Off-Broadway, one-woman performance is a timeless tale of four women in their former years forming a bond of friendship.
As they grew and matured these women set out on individual paths encountering their own share of trials, obstacles and tribulations. Yet, things are not always what they seem.
VISION: Our vision is to open an Ushered Into Healing House that would feel like home. Services would be provided, leading to self-sufficiency. These services would include, but, not limited to:
- Job training
- Dress for success
- Computer classes
- Money management
- Personal growth sessions
- Substance abuse & mental health services
