Kimi Zimmerman – Community enCompass
Theresa’s story is exciting to me because it accomplishes exactly what I think ABCD is all about. It opens the door for all neighbors to give what they have been given to make a difference in a community…one life at a time. What a story of hope! and doing life together! and love for our neighbor. Theresa was given hope when a community believed in her and worked with her and made room for her to become more of who God intended her to be and in turn we are watching her do the same in the lives of the children around her.
Theresa Higdon is an everyday hero who understands the value of neighbors working together to achieve great things. Even while she strives to move forward with her life, she works hard to accomplish great things in our community. Theresa became a member of the McLaughlin community when she entered our Bethany Transitional Housing Program after a number of homeless episodes. She progressed to the point of becoming part of our Home Ownership Program and is currently leasing with the option to purchase her home while she continues to work on repairing her credit.
