Last month I received a call from Maria Martinez-Jones, with Enterprise Rental Cars. Maria explained to me that they had a Foundation within their company, Enterprise Holdings Foundation, that donated money to a customer of theirs in their name. She asked if I had a favorite charity they could donate to in the Collision Pros name. I immediately thought of Acres of Hope. Lisa Risdal, The Executive Director of Acres of Hope and her team, have done amazing things to get homeless woman off the street and transformed them into productive self-sustaining members of society. The grant that the Enterprise Foundation gave in Collision Pros name was $1,500 much needed dollars.
Acres of Hope provides a safe family environment and a healthy living program for women with children that sets the foundation of change and breaks the cycle of homelessness. Without Acres of Hope offering the opportunity and hope for these families they are otherwise often stuck in cycle that they can’t break alone. This cycle often continues on for generations.
