“I am deeply honored to help the children who participate in ACES program and reside at the homeless shelter how to express and share their stories – the program’s goal is to give the children hope by being heard and encouraged through their circumstances - what results is a creative way to have fun and joy through the arts,” states Wendy White, Playwright and Artist.
The Shepherd's Way/HOPE South Florida provides shelter and life skill classes to homeless and hurting families throughout Broward County. “HOPE South Florida is a partnership, a lead organization in a network of partner churches and organizations working together to provide a holistic Christian response to homelessness in our community. Crossing denominational lines, Protestants and Catholics alike came together, united to serve individuals and families living on the streets.” For more information visit: https://www.hopesouthflorida.org/
