"Don’t ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive and then go do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive."
- Dr. Howard Thurman
Hear from those whose lives have been touched by Heaven on Earth NOW:
In 2015, amidst a crisis, a group of friends experienced this profound truth. God’s grace and mercy were abundantly ours, extended to us through friends, family, and the kindness of strangers. Buoyed by this support, we greeted dark days with gratitude and turned our focus outward. Indeed, our healing came from helping others, from sharing the good things with which God has blessed us and the things that bring us joy: cooking, teaching, offering encouragement, converting houses to homes, and connecting with God's green earth to feed others fresh food. We transformed our communities -- and ourselves. Together, we created a piece of heaven – a peace on earth!
In this spirit, starting in January 2016, Heaven on Earth NOW was born.
"I've never felt so low in my life the past three months, having to sleep in a shelter, and then on a floor. But look at God's love now. My baby is sleeping in a bed. I didn't realize how I blessed I was until now. I don't have that helpless, guilty feeling anymore." – Recipient, House to Home program, Baltimore, MD
"On Christmas morning when the children saw their gifts, a mom said they were wide-eyed; she told them they were being rewarded for doing good things. Another family told us that if your "elves" had not stepped in, her children would have had nothing for Christmas. You helped her to not feel like a failure as a mother. Everyone agreed that they believed your elves carefully selected just the right thing for each member of their family – whether it was certain clothing or toys – they felt it was perfect."-Agency administrator about families helped in our Elf Angel project
"We are in love with our beds. The furniture is awesome. I am going to do a DIY make over to the table and chairs in a neon color. I am excited. The chairs are very comfy. . . So yes, I am very blessed and happy. Thank you all for being a blessing to me and my kids." - Recipient, House to Home program, San Diego, CA, who received furnishings for her self and three children
"Before we had the good fortune of partnering with you and your angels, our families were mostly on their own to find ANY of their needed furniture and items. When there are no funds, this is not an easy thing to do; even thrift shops charge a fee. In the past, we have visited homes where people were so apologetic because there were no chairs. We have comfortably sat on many a floor, but now we see that our families have dignity. They can invite us in and offer a seat and a warm cup of tea. A nice piece of chocolate." -Agency administrator about families who were recipients of House to Home program
"Your angels put their whole hearts in the process of giving and caring for others..The stuff is all new and each child got numerous items... My children were very pleased with there gifts especially my teen daughter." -Recipient, Elf Angel project
"Thank for you for providing emergency assistance to my client, an 80-year-old woman who lived in an unlicensed boarding home in Baltimore where she was subject to physical and emotional abuse. ...Without the emergency assistance you provided, she would have been homeless...She is no longer alone and invisible. She believes, even in crisis, that God is with her - thanks to the hands-on connections and resources provided by Heaven on Earth NOW and our angels from Baltimore." -Social worker whose client received emergency assistance
"My family and I can never tell you how much you've blessed us this year. Everything we've received was indeed from Heaven. It's like you reached into our hearts and knew exactly what our secret wish was. May God continually bless you and your for what you have done for us and others."- Recipient, Elf Angel project
