Why I serve The Lord’s PlaceCornie Headshot

Community with a capital “C” is important to me.  A society cannot function well if the least advantaged in its communities is without hope.  Strong communities are hopeful ones where every member has a sense of worth and personal promise. If we allow our communities to accept homelessness as a necessary fact of life, then we are giving up on the very essence of what makes a society great and abandoning those most in need to lives of despair.   

The Lord’s Place is committed to building hopeful communities at their most local level.  By providing shelter, valuable job skills and peer-to-peer support, The Lord’s Place seeks to attack one of the worse symptoms of poverty.  Fortunately, I have found among the staff and board of TLP a group of individuals who are single-mindedly focused on breaking the cycle of homelessness.  We share a concern and passion to serve others who are without access to the avenues that make life meaningful.  From Diana Stanley, our CEO and Daniel Gibson, our program director to those who greet our clients at the front door or work on our campuses or those who volunteer their time and talents, each member of The Lord’s Place shares a concern and passion for helping those in need.  I think we all realize that if we have the good fortune to make a difference, then we should. It is the restoration of hope that makes us strong again and it is that look in the eyes of our clients that is so rewarding and promising for our community and for me personally.
