GIVING BACK

Name: Hearts for Jesus

History: Founded in August 1996 by Jannette V. Johnson. Volunteers are: Pat Williams, George Bailey Sr., Lareeces Bailey, Debra Shaw, Mandy Jordan, Rosalind Dubose, Debra Brown and Brenda Waldron.

Where: 8545 Highton Court, Deer Park.

Telephone: 891-7722.

Mission: "To create a spiritual outreach program that reaches out to serve those people down and out and seek to bring them to Christ, through training and witnessing workshops. We show people how to approach people, how to break the ice in a conversation and what to say. We encourage new people we meet to join a Bible study and a local congregation. We call on the local churches to assist in getting the new believers established in faith. We help them address needs, such as transportation, clothing and Bibles. We share the love and fellowship of Christ," Johnson said.

What others say: Joseph Trice, 55, homeless and unemployed was among the 400 at Washington Park July 4 when the Hearts for Jesus volunteers served food. "This group is reaching out and touching a lot of us," he said. "I believe in God and I think the way this group is reaching out helps to reinforce my belief. We need more of this. We need someone to help with jobs and housing in this area."
