Chicks Connect 8th Birthday Featured Charity Courageous Beginnings - Melony Ash Buenger

Sponsored by Business Owner Emily Guerrero of Clean Living Consulting

Description of Charity:

We can all make a difference when we come together. Join us in giving HOPE to Survivors of Abuse, Domestic Violence, Human Trafficking and Sex Exploitation.

Courageous Beginnings provides bags of Hope throughout the year as we partner with local organizations.

H – We give a hand-up not just a hand out! We help meet needs and help people help themselves.

O - We create opportunities for Courageous Beginnings!

P – Our partners help us to see people as they are: accept them, value them, and love them…as they are!

E – We provide Experiences, Education, and Edification through restored lives and mended hearts.

Courageous beginning bags are filled with gifts that you and I would give a friend. It is our goal to give HOPE to the survivors who are starting their lives over. We want to let them know they are loved, valuable and worthy no matter their past or current circumstances.

They are not forgotten and are loved! We see them, believe in their Courageous Beginnings and love them.

Our Bags of H.O.P.E. are gifts of love.

Coffee cup

As well as brand-new toys and gently-used stuffed bears for all ages. Most kids are newborn up to 13 in the shelter.
Last year we also gave all the families a board game as well.
At Christmas time, because of space and coordination, I try to only accept new things.
