Stories of Hope

The Harrleson Center truly is a place where NEEDS ARE MET, DREAMS ARE FOSTERED & HOPE ABOUNDS, and these stories are proof of that. Below are stories of hope of individuals and families who have been served through the Harrelson Center. 

  • The Pettis family

    The Pettis family has seen many struggles. They were recently homeless with their 3 kids and almost had their kids taken away, when a church provided a hotel for them for 2 weeks. They finally got approved for special housing but they couldn't afford the deposit for their bills and moved in with nothing but air mattresses and clothes.The Harrelson Center Help Hub was able to pay their deposits for their bills so that they can have electricity and also supplied furniture and necessary house supplies (such as plates, silverware etc.). We also connected them to Park Sterling Bank who provided the Pettis family children with uniforms and Christmas presents. Listen to their full story here.
