Build Relationships. Break Poverty. | Six Quick (But Powerful) Stories of Transformation

This month’s podcast episode was recorded on a snowy day in Colorado. In fact, it was so snowy that the participants could not make it into our headquarter office to be recorded!

In this authentic and inspiring episode, six Children’s HopeChest staff members called in to share a story of transformation that they experienced while working with HopeChest. Some of the stories describe children who have been through CarePoint programs and are now massively succeeding. Other stories describe partners who have been transformed through their partnership, and left a lasting legacy.

We use the word “transformation” a lot here at HopeChest. In this episode, we unpack what that word means, and how HopeChest staff see transformation in their work. We hope that you enjoy each unique story!

“I was very happy to see these two girls, and I was very much in tears. So I saw that this poverty cycle is being broken. Dignity. Dignity of the children is being restored.” Tesfa Abebe
