From the Eyes of a Student

My excuse for not writing a blog entry lately is because I have been focusing on my other project of taking clients to breakfast. I have had a student (Maggie Rossiter) that spent time at the Center during the summer when the renovations were going on. Below is what...

People in Need are Good People

One of the things that upsets me the most is the offhand comments I hear about the supposed rampant abuse of social service agencies. People do not visit places like the Heart Ministry Center for fun. I personally believe that everyone would love to be able to buy...

Why Tonight Is Important

Why Tonight Is Important? So this is my attempt at a pre-game pep talk: I do not want to dictate to anybody why you should personally feel motivated to help the Center tonight and hope Holy Smokes is successful financially. Frankly, I can think of many, many reasons...

50 Faces & 2 Eggs Over Easy

A closer look at the stories behind the need in our community. Over the course of the next year, the Executive Director of the Heart Ministry Center in Omaha, NE, is going to take a client to breakfast once a week. The goal of this endeavor? To share with people what...

Proud

Maybe I am not supposed to admit this but I am very proud of the way the Center operates. In particular, I feel very fortunate to work with such dedicated and caring staff and volunteers. I am reminded of our staff’s genuine concern and willingness to serve...

What Kids Know

I am always shocked by the challenges and struggles the children visiting the Center must overcome. I am impressed by their resourcefulness and ability to survive their situations. In the same respect, I am saddened that children have to know these things simply to...

Crying

I have been writing blog entries for a couple of years now and still have not figured out why I am blogging. My high school English teachers would probably chastise me for lacking a consistent theme or message. It is just hard for me to focus my thoughts and ideas on...
