Desiree

Desiree came to 72-Hour Fund and got outfitted with cloths, hygiene items, birth certificate and other essentials.

Desiree was at the Denver Women’s Correctional Facility when she attended a meeting sponsored by DHT to introduce 72 Hour Fund to ladies who were interested. At this meeting she met Suzy Mays, wife of our Operations Manager, Mr. Chris Mays. Desiree had completed the cosmetology training inside DWCF, so was getting out with skills to support herself upon her return to society. She did not have the professional tools of her trade, i.e., shears, scissors and clippers. She would need those things to practice, but more importantly, use them to get her license from the State of Colorado. She asked Suzy if DHT/72 Hour Fund could help.

Suzy encouraged her to write a letter outlining her needs and to pray over the letter before it was sent to her. Desiree did both of those things. Upon receiving Desiree’s letter, Suzy shared it with two lady volunteers who were arranging cloths at the DHT HQ. The ladies were touched and offered to donate the money for Desiree so she could buy her tools and get her license and again, become a productive member of society.

Upon her release, Desiree came to DHT/72 Hour Fund and got outfitted with cloths, hygiene items, birth certificate and other essentials. Most of all, she and Suzy went to the store and bought professional shears, scissors and clippers and other equipment necessary for cosmetology success. Now 90 days later, you see Desiree! She has passed her exams, obtained her cosmetology license from the State of Colorado and is actively pursuing her own chair in a salon near her home.

This is simply one story how a “cup of cold water” changed a life in Jesus’ name.

A visit from a loved one while in prison through our Barn-A-Bus program is like giving a cup of cold water to a person dying of thirst. It will change the life trajectory of an incarcerated woman or man to see their children, mother or spouses. Finding acceptance and tangible clothing assistance through DHT’s 72 Hour Fund has changed the life of more than 80% of inmates who come to DHT. Change a life today by supporting these two programs that are changing lives.

Continue to remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.

Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.
