Layla's Journey

Heartisans has helped me get ready for career reentry. However, this explanation is inadequate: Heartisans has helped me redefine and refocus my reentry journey and career vision with God at the center. They have, along with Son Shine, effectively taken the fear out of my career reentry. I have made friends for life and have a community of support, which is something I have never had.

Heartisans is doing what Jesus has called us to do: They are the hands and feet of Jesus, and they serve with love and without reservation. When I think of Heartisans, I am overwhelmed with love; and they, along with Son Shine, have shown me what a community truly is.

What I love most about Heartisans is the love they show through one-on-one attention, tailoring each experience for the individual. On top of career training, they offer sound advise, support par excellence, encouragement like you can’t imagine, and prayer. They do not just offer career reentry support; their program is so much more. Heartisans is a holistic approach to career with Jesus at the center.

I can not express well enough how much I appreciate the immense amount of volunteer time and resources it takes to run Heartisans. EVERY SINGLE volunteer has my heart. Thank you, truly, for all you do and are doing.

One day I will be able to give back and I will forever pay it forward!
