HELPING FAMILIES OVERCOME DYSFUNCTION
ONE HOPE AT A TIME
In 1976 Mrs. Caretha Brown began working as a volunteer in the Orange County Jail, counseling and helping women to find stability in the community upon their release. These women seemed to have a difficult time finding jobs, housing and support that was needed to take care of them and their children. Caretha just felt strong in her heart that God wanted her to seek ways to help these women recover from addiction and other life-debilitating problems. At the time of her volunteering at the jail, she was gainfully employed at the Orange County Health Department as a Nurse Administrator and later in 1981 as an Occupational Health Nurse with the Federal Government at the Federal Court House downtown. As she continued to help women one on one she knew that someday this vision would become a reality.
