Celebrate Annett Bovent’s life and success, from surviving a traumatic childhood, to becoming a homeless single mom, to running her own non-profit organization.
Annett Bovent moved to Walla Walla with her three children hoping for a fresh start. She took up working multiple jobs and found herself homeless three times over a period of 12 years. After applying for an interest-free home loan with Hayden Homes, she felt incredibly blessed to be one of the chosen recipients. Moving into her new home, her eldest son provided her with a care package of much needed household supplies. This simple act of love from her son renewed her hope and inspired her to begin her own charitable organization called Hope Heals. Her mission is to give others the Love and Hope that she and her family had received.
Hope Heals provides care packages and shower bags to homeless families and single veterans transitioning out of homelessness into permanent housing. This year Hope Heals expanded to include its 1st Annual Warm Clothing Drive. Annett says that this has been the most rewarding thing that she has ever accomplished in her life so far. Annett’s goal is to continue to expand and add new services through Hope Heals.
Listen to Annett Bovent present more on the fulfilling work and future goals of Hope Heals. Be touched by listening to Annett’s personal story of overcoming her traumatic childhood, surviving homelessness and allowing hope to transform her life. Become more aware of homelessness in our community and learn of ways that you can also help. Above all, be inspired to give others hope, to create community, and to make the world a better place.
