On September 30th, 2017, VTCHACO Orphans Empowerment engaged in its first outreach event at Maryvale, a residential, educational, and mental health community for foster children. Representatives of VTCHACO Orphans Empowerment were given the wonderful opportunity to speak words of wisdom, encouragement, prosperity, and prayer to young girls between the ages of 15 and 18. Each girl received a handcrafted gift bag filled with things from basic necessities to gift cards. In addition, over 25 backpacks were donated for the 2018 school year. Thanks to our volunteers and their donations, this event was a success, but most importantly our goal is to plants seeds of positivity and love in each girls life as they begin to grow and find their way.
