God first planted the seeds for the Women of Hope Resource Center in the hearts of two local women in 2002. These women experienced firsthand, both personally and professionally, the crises that women face today. Like many women, they struggled with feelings of rejection, abandonment and low self esteem. It was only through their personal relationships with God, the Almighty Counselor, that they were able to experience freedom. Having this experience, it troubled them to see women being offered "quick fixes" that often solved one problem but neglected the core issues. This passion to help other women physically, mentally and spiritually continued to grow as they felt God calling them to begin a Christian women's center in southern New Jersey.
