Strong By Design Podcast

Dec 29, 2021

Today on Strong By Design we finish 2021 with the most POWERFRUL conversation of the year… and that’s saying a lot!

Something very special has been happening for children in Tampa, FL for over 50 years and it is our great honor at Critical Bench to share this message with you.

Hosts Mike Westerdal and Chris Wilson visited Hope Children’s Home and sat down with Director Dr. Mike Higgins to talk about all the many blessings and some of the tear-jerking stories at Hope.

From Hope Children’s Home official website:

Founded in 1968, Hope Children’s Home has rescued nearly 5,000 children between the ages of infant to 18 years of age. The type of children we care for are not juvenile delinquents, but rather children that, through no fault of their own, find themselves in a situation of needed rescue. Some children simply come out of a situation where a parent just needs a little help.

We believe that a personal relationship with Christ, combined with an excellent education and a well-rounded sports program is the key to Hope’s success.

We feel that God has called us to help rebuild the broken lives of these children and to build the bridge, when possible, between home, parent, and child.

"The children see first-hand that God will never leave them nor forsake them." -Dr. Mike Higgins
