Yummy Finds was originally opened in November of 2009. In February of 2010, local owners Courtney & Rudy Figuerova took over the business. In the fall of 2016, Courtney felt led to close the doors. It was heartbreaking, but she knew that if the Lord was calling her to this, knowing that there is great blessing in obedience, then her obedience should follow. After officially closing the doors to Yummy Finds, through a pastor at her church, the Lord confirmed the closing of the doors, and revealed a seed. This seed, Yummy Finds in it's former state, would have to be allowed to die completely in order for it to grow & mature into something even more beautiful!  A seed has to first die in order to then become a mature plant & begin to produce a plentiful harvest of new lives! Only at that time she was not aware of what it would be. 

 

Perpetual Help Home

Perpetual Help Home is a housing program for woman and their children that has been in operation since 1995.

Since our doors opened in 1995, we've experienced exciting growth and continue to have an impact on our community. The primary success of the home is that the staff has provided a safe loving environment for women to change not only their life but also the lives of their children!

Over the years, we saw great success in women changing behaviors to live healthy lives, but the ability to earn a decent wage was an on-going challenge. So in 2006, we opened the social enterprise of the Center for Peace to provide women an opportunity to learn skills to earn more. 

 

Restaurant Academy

Restaurant Academy is a 6-month on the job training offered to women who want to work in the restaurant industry but have no experience or significant employment barriers. This unique model is offered through the Center for Peace a social enterprise of Perpetual Help Home.
