Administrative Assistant at the 12th Street Office
Ever since Jodi started at Call to Freedom over 18 months ago, the 12th Street office has never run as smoothly. She loves working at Call to Freedom because of the people, both internal and external, since everyone works together as a team. She also has a desire to help, serve, and guide people in a healthy way to achieve their hopes and dreams.
She grew up as a farm girl in Eureka where she like to hunt. In fact, she is deer hunting this fall for the first time in 30 years on her parent's land in Eureka. She is also going to run a half marathon in Fargo this coming Spring. A mother of two adult girls, Jodi is now officially an empty nester except for her Manx cat, Dexter, and she is loving it! As an avid cook and baker, Jodi loves nothing better than a steak grilled to medium rare perfection. In her spare time, she spends lots of time with her parents and girls as life is too short not to share with your loved ones. The most solid advice she has ever been given is to buy a plunger before you need a plunger.
In June, we broke ground on Marissa's Housing Project and the foundation has been finished. We anticipate a completion date of March 2022.
Safe, supportive housing is key to meeting the needs of human trafficking survivors. If victims do not feel safe and their basic needs are not met, then their chances of successfully leaving the life of human trafficking is almost impossible. Since many survivors have children, the expansion of Marissa's House will also help us re-unify families and keep them together.
Thank you to everyone who has come along side us in this Christ-led journey. We appreciate your support and prayers.
