Mrs. Destiny D. Bradshaw, Program Manager--- Effingham CONNECT & HELP Program
Refusing to crumble amidst the financial woes Destiny and her family suffered after the loss of her husband’s job. Destiny was inspired in 2010 to channel her energy into helping others avoid many of the same economic road blocks.
In the summer of 2012, Destiny began developing and implementing Effingham CONNECT (Community Network Navigation Center), formerly Effingham CWF (Center for Working Families); a 3 month, customized case management work readiness program in which participants acquire skills and tools necessary to help them find and retain employment. Unique to this work readiness program is the financial component of H.E.L.P. (Hope for Everyone Looking for Provisions), of which Destiny is the Founder.
Sarahlyn Argrow inspired and challenged us at November's Lead n Link meeting: "Light is something that makes things Visible (Dictionary.com). Am I light? Yes I am licensed to Inspire the Gift of Hope that is Timeless. So what does this mean?
I was so deep in darkness and did not know where to turn. My inside light was so covered with hurt, disappointment, humiliation, shame and low self esteem. But through perseverance, determination and hearing the will of God I was able to muster up that great big ball of Light and it began to shine like no other light in in this universe.
