VOH Doesn't Just Change the Lives of Children...
Brandy and her boys at the VOH Smith Center Field Trip last Christmas
Let us introduce you to one of our parents, Brandy Franco... She didn't have a high school diploma and was working as a waitress at a local pizzeria, but she didn't really have any idea of what she wanted to do with her life. When her children started coming to VOH, the staff constantly talk to her about ways she could improve her life and that of her children. She started volunteering at VOH; teaching the kids how to paint, make pizza, etc. She began to realize what she wanted in her life, and what she was good at. It was working with children. She worked to get her GED and now she's looking into college classes and taking tests to start working in the Clark County School District.
So many times we just think about the kids and what VOH does for them, but it actually changes adults' lives as well. Village of Hope has given Brandy a new direction in her life. Brandy tells others that the only reason she got her high school diploma was because of volunteering at VOH. BRAVO Brandy Franco!! You deserve all the wonderful things life has to offer!
