Touching Miami with Love is all impact. Long term impact. The kind that takes years and years. From seeing children learn to read, moving into middle school and discovering their faith, to walking through college and career planning with youth in their senior year–we love watching our TML kids grow up. We love listing the names of TML graduates who have successfully launched into adulthood.
One young woman who has been a joy to watch grow is Brittney. She gave us permission to share her story with you here. If you ever called our offices, then you’ve likely talked to Brittney. Brittney was in grade school when she moved to Overtown with her grandmother, and she and her two sisters began attending our children’s programming. As she was becoming a teen in 2005 Angel and I joined TML and Brittney remained active in programming. When she was fourteen, she became one of our summer Jr. Interns working alongside our children’s program. She excelled in the role and was a joy to work alongside.
Fast forward through middle school and high school, she took part in everything TML offered and we got to know and love Brittney’s quiet, steady demeanor even more. Following high school, Brittney began to show up at TML to volunteer and eventually landed a regular position answering phones. As our programs grew, we discovered the need for a Program Assistant and Brittney was the obvious choice. Now nearly five years later, we are excited to announce that Brittney is in the transition to become our new Office Manager. It’s a role with a lot more responsibilities, but we firmly believe she is up for the task and we are very excited for her.
Because of Christ Journey’s decades of support, Brittney’s story of impact is your story
too. Thanks for being on the journey of impact with us.
