Believer, Precious Blood Ministry of Reconciliation, Chicago
Precious Blood Ministry of Reconciliation (PBMR) is a network of reconciliation ministries working with the AT&T Believe Chicago® program to help heal those in the Chicago community who have been impacted by violence and conflict. The organization strives to give people in the community, like Dashaun Hammoc, a safe space to heal and find support and encouragement, something often hard to come by in the midst of life struggles. At PBMR, Hammoc not only learned life skills that many take for granted, such as how to care for a home, he also learned the power of a positive mindset and forward thinking. Hammoc says PBMR gave him the power to see his future self and to understand that it could be more than the sum of his past experiences. Hammoc, who has goals of being financially stable and self-sufficient, knows that having the right guidance, like what he’s found at PBMR, is the key to his forward progression.
