28 Aug Giving back at the Center for Women & Children
This blog is authored by Beth Isom, a High Impact volunteer at Wheeler’s Center for Women & Children in Indianapolis.
Who I am
I’m a project manager for a company called Southern Foodservice Management, Inc. I manage a multimillion-dollar business inside a federal building in Indianapolis. I’ve held this position for 12 years and oversee 24 employees who serve meals to 4,000 federal workers a day.
How I got Involved
I first got involved with Wheeler about three years ago. My husband, Mark, and I were leaders for a Celebrate Recovery ministry meeting. Many of the women in the CWC’s Higher Ground addiction recovery program attended. I fell in love with the ladies’ hearts for recovery and for the Lord. I wanted to learn more.
Where I Am Now
Today, I’m deeply involved with Wheeler. I’m a Naomi Project Mentor, member of the prayer team, a High Impact volunteer, and a Mary Wheeler Circle member. Two years ago, I started a running ministry with the Higher Ground ladies. My favorite memory is watching the women run or walk across the finish line at one of our 5K races. It’s a huge blessing to see their faces as they accomplish something that many have never experienced or that they never could do while they were in their crisis.
Why I Love Serving at the Center for Women & Children
I chose to serve here because I love that Wheeler has a Christ-centered mission to unashamedly share the Gospel while providing basic needs and tools for lifelong recovery. I love seeing the whole person get healing—body, mind, and spirit!
