Hey Changer Maker! My guest this week is Andrea Holtman of BLOC Ministries and Weightless Anchor.
Andrea happily retired from corporate life in June of 2017 and has since found herself on an incredible journey with Bloc Ministries in the Price Hill area of Cincinnati, OH. She is blessed to spend her days serving women on the street, on a mission to break the chains of poverty, addiction and sex trafficking.
ABOUT BLOC MINISTRIES & WEIGHTLESS ANCHOR:
BLOC Ministries’ mission is to build relationships with their neighbors and share hope in brokenness. Weightless Anchor is a program of BLOC Ministries made up of women who believe that people can change through relationship and love. Most importantly they believe in the power of Jesus to heal and make whole. In 2012, BLOC opened the first Weightless Anchor hospitality home in Lower Price Hill in urban Cincinnati to serve women on the streets who struggle with addiction and are victims of sex-trafficking by providing for their basic needs. In the fall of 2015 the second Weightless Anchor Hospitality home was opened in East Price Hill. Weightless Anchor offers rest, showers, hot meals, free clothes, and hygiene products, and most importantly, love without a cost.
