Featured April Outreach – Rooms of Hope

Little known to many at our church, members of Asbury have been active with Rooms of Hope for several years.  The mission is simple – provide a room makeover for children with life-threatening illnesses.  The goal is to surround these children with love and create a personal space of hope and joy, as many of them literally fight for their lives.  As one child put it, “My room is a reflection of me and why I matter in this world.”

Representative of our work is makeovers for Andrew and Hannah in Livermore.  Andrew is blind and endures a lifetime of feeding tubes, tracheotomy and heart monitors since most of his body organs were damaged during pregnancy.  Hannah has cystic fibrosis and lung failure.  Both kids were adopted, along with three other special needs children, by the same loving family.
