Taking Life Changing Steps

The father of three wanted to get his life on the right path after serving time in prison. Myke’s parole officer told him about Heart House, an emergency shelter and Freestore Foodbank community partner located in Southeastern Indiana. One morning in November, Myke left behind his life in Bartholomew County, south of Indianapolis, and walked more than 60 miles to Aurora, Indiana, determined for a fresh start.Indiana resident Myke Stevens, who had made a lifetime of bad choices, was determined to turn his life around; so much so, he spent an entire day walking to get to the place that could help move him in the right direction.


Before there can be a conversation on possibilities and potential, we must provide food. It is the single most important foundational element linking all people.


Addressing hunger allows us to have conversations on other issues affecting individuals, families and communities to help create stability and self-reliance for those in need.


By connecting those in need to services that create stability, we work to determine the root causes of hunger and poverty and build hope in our community.
