Viva Italia Spaghetti dinner for Doors of Hope

“Let mutual love continue. Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by doing that some have entertained angels without knowing it. Remember those who are in prison, as though you were in prison with them; those who are being tortured, as though you yourselves were being tortured.” Hebrews 13:1-3 Doors of Hope is doing this very thing for our community. Hope stands for H elping O ffenders P repare E ffectively for L iving I n F reedom E veryday, Hope for Life! Doors of Hope is dedicated to reducing recidivism in Rutherford County by helping the ex-offender build a stable, healthy, productive life for herself and her family after incarceration. Doors of Hope is stepping up and doing the difficult task of following Jesus, which is why Viva Italia TN, Blackman Emergency Response Team, and Blackman United Methodist Church wants to step up and encourage Doors of Hope.
