14: Our graduate speaker, Debi, held our attention telling her story of redemption from a life of addiction which cost her not only her home, but custody of her children too. Many eyes in the audience cried tears of joy as she shared how she is now reunited with them and continuing to save money every month. If it wasn't for Hillcrest and all it's supporters, she wouldn't have overcome the odds placed before her as a single mother. Today Debi shares her story with everyone and helps others in the program to succeed as they follow her example. Thank you Debi for sharing your success!

17: "We will be judged by 'I was hungry and you gave me to eat, I was naked and you clothed me, I was homeless and you took me in.' Hungry not only for bread -- but hungry for love. Naked not only for clothing -- but naked for human dignity and respect. Homeless not only for want of a room of bricks -- but homeless because of rejection." Mother Teresa
18: "Everybody can be great...because anybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love." Martin Luther King, Jr.

20: "I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do something I can do." Edward Everett Hale
