Shepherd's Star November 2019

Newsletter by - Tina Holman Owen (Director)


Hello Everyone, 

We had a good October and now we are gearing up for the Holiday’s and hopefully, our 20th Anniversary cookbooks will arrive. Please call to reserve yours. We will call when they come in, Price $20 and $5 extra if you need us to mail them. Just send us a check for $25 made out to: Shepherd’s House P. O Box 2611 Tullahoma, Tn 37388, and we will get them in the mail to you as soon as they come in. 

Also remember our Strive4five campaign for our New Women and Children’s Center/Shelter. Text strive4five to 31996 and donate a $5 or more gift. 

We have had a full house most of the month and are now starting to get new residents in. Most of these may be here through the winter. We have had 7 move into their own place.

One lady went to a ladies program for 9mths. She was from an abusive relationship and was not even able to go to church or the store here, Now she is settled out of state and going to church and loving the freedom that she now has. 

We had to evict 5 people, 2 went to the Nashville mission and another back on the street because of drug use. 2 had the money saved for their own place.. We had 4 people that were disabled and 1 disabled veteran. 6 residents had jobs. We gave out furniture to 2 families, Clothing to 15 and food to 18. We had a total of 15 residents.

To date:

We have sheltered 146 homeless individuals

Filled 1797 individual beds

Served 5862 individual meals

Moved into their own homes to date 33 

Got jobs to date 40 

Disabled to date 32

Disabled veterans to date 4

Praise Report: One of our residents got saved and it is unbelievable the change that has happened in her! We also have a disabled veteran that is under such conviction that I believe the Lord has already saved him. Our classes have been on boundaries this month and we are finding out that most of the residents did not even have any, but it sure is making a difference in their life now as they are learning what good and bad boundaries are.  

May God bless you all for your giving and your prayers!

Sincerely, Tina Holman Owen

Please call or come by and visit us, our office hours are from 9am-4pm, our lunch is from 1-2pm. We are looking to help all the homeless that we can. We are limited because we only have so many beds and we have both men and women, sometimes we can take a family depending upon the availability and how many children. 

We are looking into the future of having another shelter for women and children, also praying for the funding to-do so.

Shepherds House can always use monetary donations, 

Walmart and Kroger gift cards can be used for daily items.

Thank you all for your help, we are only here because of your donations.

Please keep us in your prayers.
