Mrs. Jo-Ann Towery Brown has been part of Voice of Hope’s family almost since its inception. Thirty Four years ago,
Jo-Ann has been involved with Voice of Hope in one way or another for
34 years! She is amazingly active and vivacious! Her children have grown, but she still comes to Voice of Hope every week for Bible Study. Jo-Ann will often carpool with some of the other Bible Study ladies and makes sure everyone has a ride there and back. “I enjoy learning about the Bible every week.”
For Jo-Ann, Voice of Hope is where she can love and be loved. “The Bible is Love!” Jo-Ann loves to do things for others in her group and in her neighborhood. “I want to be like Christ.”
Jo-Ann enjoys working with the Seniors in her Bible Study and in the community. She often helps Debbie Solis with the Voice of Hope Family and Community Services. And her involvement doesn’t stop there, she attends the monthly Crime Watch meetings, and goes to most of the DISD and City of Dallas meetings, as well.
Jo-Ann’s favorite memory of Voice of Hope is when her children graduated from the program. Both of her children are doing well. Derrick has been in the Marines for 20 years and is now living in California. Her daughter, Kalondra, lives and works here in Dallas and has two children one who is about to graduate high school and start college.
Voice of Hope was that safe place where Jo-Ann knew her children would be well cared for after school while she was working. Now, Voice of Hope is where she goes to be with her neighbors and to study the Gospel. Through those friends, she has found her church home at Greenway Park Church of God in Christ.
Jo-Ann loves Voice of Hope because she knows that she is always welcome and it is a place where she can go when she needs help or advice. Voice of Hope is a place where the community can feel welcome.
