Anyone who knows Patti Pennington knows that she is on a mission from God.
Patti is a well known force for good in the Las Vegas Community through her Now Faith Community Development Corporation.
Ever since moving to Las Vegas from Detroit she's been on a mission to educate and empower women and children who's lives have been effected by domestic violence, sickness and mental illness.
Patti is in her 8th year of producing her Annual All White Domestic Violence Awards Gayla where she honors community leaders and brings in special guests (last year it was Melba Moore) to share their testimony so that these women see that they too can rise above their circumstances to be whatever they dream. For the event Patti transports an entire group of women from shelters who she and her team have made over with hair, make-up and a special white outfit. These women spend an entire day FEELING what is's like to be beautiful, honored, important.
Now, Patti's Faith Brooks House will give mentally challenged women ready to leave hospitals and mental health facilities soft place to land. Brooks house is where they can receive prayer, counseling, empowerment, leadership ,therapy and office skills.
Patti's team of counselors and licensed therapists are there to help them set up a plan to get where they dream of going.
Patti is in the final stages of getting Brooks House ready to welcome it's first seven ladies. Facilities and Hospitals who have learned about Brooks House are enthusiastically calling call her to interview patients for entry into the program.
This is just the first of many houses Patti plans to buy, furnish and staff to help those in transition. Her next plan is for a youth home. As a child who survived domestic abuse Patti says, "I made it out and people need to know that there is hope."
