Inspirational Speaker to get real with teens about risky behaviors

(New Jersey) – As a teenage mother and victim of abusive relationships with her stepfather to boyfriends, Yvonne Harvey Williams tried to fill the void in her life with sex, drugs and alcohol.

After living that life for seven years, Williams realized that was not the answer. So, she became celibate at 21 and changed her life.

“It (celibacy) brought the most clarity for me. You can make healthy decisions in moments of clarity,” said Williams.

Expecting mothers in Haiti need our help

Expecting mothers in Haiti need our help

The Haitian Minister of Social Affairs makes a plea to the community!

Message from Rev. Soaries – The Haitian Minister of Social Affairs is responsible for orphans, handicapped and other exceptionally marginal Haitians.

In my meeting with him this morning, he asked me for some special help that is compelling and very specific. There are pockets of displaced people living in large “tent villages.” In one such place 68,000 people are living together. In this one area, there are 2,000 expectant mothers. These people exist beneath the radar of the large relief efforts since they have yet to give birth.

The Minister would like to do something that addresses a basic need among these women. He would like to help them by providing every newly delivered child with a “new birth kit” that helps the mother with the basics to tie her over until her new child is “in the system.”

He would like to start with the 2,000 women in this particular tent village and hopefully attract enough attention to take this nationwide.
