When Virginia Smith’s heating unit went out, she wondered how she would possibly pay the high cost of such a repair without devastating her monthly budget. Like many retirees, Virginia had only her Social Security income to rely on. Living without heat was not an option, so she made the very difficult decision to invest in the repair, even if it meant not being able to pay some of her bills or buy groceries that month.
When a friend recommended Servant’s Heart for possible assistance, Virginia reached out to see if help was available to her. She spoke warmly about the first time she sat down with Servant’s Heart Executive Director and Social Worker, Kim Rhodarmer, to discuss her need. “Kim really listened, making it easy for me to talk to her about what was going on in my life at the time. She encouraged me and had such a love about her making me feel as if she was just there to help out a friend.”
Servant’s Heart and our partners were able to ensure Virginia had food, non-food pantry items, and utility assistance to help her get back on her feet. Feeling blessed and thankful as she recalls her experience with Servant’s Heart, Virginia joyfully remarked, “That place is a Godsend, and Kim is truly an angel.”
Virginia is sharing her experience with others in her community who are struggling financially. She is hopeful that they will be comforted in knowing Servant’s Heart is a refreshing and welcoming friend to those who need a helping hand.
Shannon Cady has known Kim Rhadarmer (Founder and Executive Director, Servant’s Heart) and Tracy Doyle (Community Boutique Manager, Servant’s Heart) for three years now, and it doesn’t seem to surprise her that these women are doing wonderful things.
The three met originally at another organization, and Shannon found herself saddened when both Kim and Tracy were no longer there. “I have such a respect and admiration for them both, ” Shannon said, adding, “I love the heart they have for serving.”
It seems logical that God would later orchestrate circumstances that would lead Shannon and her children right to the front door of Servant’s Heart. “God gave us a direction we followed it, and he’s blessed us because of it,” Shannon and her husband are one of the top financial contributors to Servant’s Heart today, and Shannon volunteers weekly.
“It brings me so much joy to be at Servant’s Heart with the women and volunteers there, and it’s good for my kids to see Mom serving” she says clearly happy to be a part of something so special.
Servant’s Heart of Mint Hill is a 501(c)(3) organization.
