On December 11, 2009, Leah entered The Bridge to not only have a home and support in her journey from homelessness to wholeness, but she also entered so her daughter could be restored to her. Having children returned is a tremendous motivation for many of our mothers. On October 4, 2010, Leah’s support team from Bethany Bible Church and other volunteers and staff moved her restored family into a home of her own.
July 2, 2020, we celebrate again. We want to share this celebration in the words from Nurse Leah.
I passed my nursing board!!! Nurse Leah Copeland, RN!!! Here to serve. Praise the Lord. Thank you!!! I could have never done this without all the direction and accountability I had at The Bridge to Hope. Through the budgeting skills, y’all taught me I was able to get a bachelor’s degree in nursing and only have $5,000 in loans!!! I learned how to do that from y’all. My wants vs. my needs!!!! I’m so grateful that y’all didn’t give up on me and kept guiding me in the right direction. 11 years ago I was lost in addiction and had no hope today I am Nurse Leah RN.
I want to share that again, 11 years ago she was lost in her addiction. You provided this mother the hope she needed by providing a home and the love from a faith community. Today we celebrate with Nurse Leah, RN
Today Bridge moms in their recovery and restoration process appreciate the help and support you give them so that in the future they will be able to share the celebrations of continued accomplishments as Leah has done.
