SafeHouse Ministries “Then the righteous will answer him,
‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and
feed you, or thirsty and give you
something to drink? When did we see
you a stranger and invite you in, or
needing clothes and clothe you? When did
we see you sick, or in prison and go to
visit you?" The King will reply,"I tell you
the truth, whatever you did for one of the
least of these brothers of mine,
you did for me."
- Matthew 25:37-40

Britt & Bella Turner

Catherine Britt Turner

Ms. Turner came to the Trinity House with a broken spirit, bewildered, and depressed.  We worked with her to reestablish her self-worth.  Then she looked for and attained employment. Once she had saved enough money, we were able to refer her to a housing program and she has moved into a place of her own.  I am proud to report that Ms. Turner has gotten a second job and is doing great.  God blessed her with a smile deep down in her soul and a positive outlook on life.  Keep up the good job Britt!

Emmitt Shephard

Emmitt Shepard

Mr. Emmitt Shephard is 62 years of age and drawing retirement. He has 6 grown girls that he stays in contact with. He came to Columbus about 4 years ago and was recently homeless for about 8 months. He is now sharing a home with friends, sharing living expenses and doing well. Mr. Shephard volunteers with SafeHouse on a daily basis and does whatever we need him to do, whether in the kitchen or upstairs with no questions asked.  He has a loving smile and a warm heart that he shares with everyone that comes to the SafeHouse.  He makes people happy and comfortable and shares his love of Jesus Christ.  Mr. Shephard has been a wonderful member of the TEAM and we look forward to working with him in the future.

Employee Award

Chris Aguilar

Chris Aguilar

I can’t thank Chris enough for his hard work and dedication to God’s call on his heart.  The ministry has grown so much over the last couple years.  We feed and serve thousands of people, housing over 70 each and every night.  We have birthed our Case Management center which is speeding up the move from our shelters to permanent housing and we birthed Tomorrow’s Hope, our six-month, intensive outpatient substance abuse program.  As God continues to grow this ministry, Chris makes sure it all works.  He keeps the various elements of the ministry communicating with each other, he makes sure the product is first rate and delivered on-time and with the love of Jesus.  We couldn’t accomplish all that God has put on our plate if not for our Chief Operations Officer, Chris Aguilar.  Thank you Chris.  We love you!
