Surpassing our goal

Yesterday, we reached a goal that many thought was impossible! We hit our annual goal and made over 275 people in less than four months with the Mobile Makeovers bus!

After two and a half months of laboring to get the bus ready, the bus hit the road in May and has been giving people dignity since that historical month!

Today, we will begin to blow this goal out of the water by making more people over and connecting people to resources that will help them become self-sufficient!

Below is a picture of our 275th makeover! Thank you if you gave to this project!

Bruce makes art – Dignity Art

Check out this video! It highlights what Bruce has done with the art he has been making! He has made a piece for #dignityart that says, “Keep Moving Forward.” It you make a bid, we can employ him for a days worth of work. See how this is helping him fight homelessness.

Before/After Inside Bus

Since our “Get on The Bus” campaign, we have made some major strides. In fact, in the last two months we have gotten the bus wrapped, and started the transformation process on the inside. It has come a long way, and it is almost that time to get it on the road.

We will have two phases of the bus completed (Barbershop/Closet). 

After getting it on the road and sharing some #mobilemakovers stories, we are then going to attempt to raise additional funds to add the shower unit inside.

If you would like to view a before/after picture of inside check them out below. Also, if you would like to give to our project please click [HERE].

Small pieces make the big picture!

Have you ever collected many small puzzle pieces, and somehow it dawns on you that they all make up a bigger picture?

Well, that’s what has happened and keeps happening with our #mobilemakeovers project! The other day, my daughter and I decided to take the two front seats to a reupholstery shop five minutes away from the office… Upon our arrival, I spoke with the owner, showed him the seats, and waited for an estimate.

Little did I know he’d ask me why were we wanting the seats to be redone… Well, I shared our story and he got this look in his eyes… He looked at the seats, and then looked at me and said, “God wants me to help you… You all are out there ministering to people… we will do them at no charge!”

This touched me so much because little by little God has provided through random people to help us piece together our first mobile project!

Huge S/O to Banister’s Upholstery!
