We are so thankful to Whitney Chaffin for generously naming a room in our new Lane Enrichment Center! “I am doing this because I believe we can only change the world by giving without expectation. So many people are living their life just existing. And the truth is, if your purpose in life doesn’t make you cry, if it doesn’t get you on the edge of your seat, if it doesn’t get you excited, then you’re ‘why’ isn’t big enough. My ‘why’ is helping people. It’s giving. It’s making sure I leave the world and people I meet in better shape than I found them in.” – Whitney Chaffin. If you are interested in taking a tour of this facility or additional naming opportunities, please contact Director of Advancement Lisa McDulin at lisam@placeofhoperinker.org.

It was so great to be able to share with them how their industry is connected to this issue and to encourage them to take the FRLA Human Trafficking Training!
