Eugena was the first of our guests to be able to purchase a home (pictured right). We couldn't be more thankful to have been able to help her with this process!
"I was homeless and was desperately trying to get my kids back in my custody. There were some things that I had to work out in my life and I needed some place that would provide shelter and structure. My friend told me about Ms.Vernaye and STAND. Ms. Vernaye took me into her own home and provided shelter, care, and support in helping me get custody of my children. She started out helping me get all that was needed for me to have my kids with me for weekend visits. Ms. Vernaye is structured and she not only guided me in ways to establish credit, job searching, and marketing skills but she also provided spiritual insight to all that we did. Ms. Vernaye is kind and I thank God for her allowing me to be in her home alone without knowing me personally. The Lord has blessed and I got my children in my custody and we are now stable and in our own home. S.T.A.N.D. SOULS TOUCHING ANOTHER NEEDING DELIVERANCE is fantastic. I know that whomever Ms. Vernaye has in STAND that they will be better off as a mother and woman of God from being under her care."

“In this day and age, it’s hard to find someone you can trust". I used to go to church with Mrs. Vernaye and we had similar passions. Mrs. Vernaye was one of the ones that came to help me when my son was going through a tough time in his life. After I left the church we were still in contact. Years passed and things happened where I was living at an extended stay hotel and was being evicted. Then Mrs.Vernaye messaged me on Facebook and said she had an offer for me if I was willing to accept it. She told me about STAND and wanted me and my boys to be her Guest. If only she knew what a blessing that was to even be remembered for I know God was answering my prayer for at the time I wanted to just give up. She had no idea that God was using her mightily to give me hope and yet He was letting me know He was listening to and was doing something about my cries. We are not materialistic but she has showered us with a wonderful furnished place where my boys and I, after 2 and 1/2 years, have our separate rooms. I can cook a meal on a stove and my sons can have cold sodas for our refrigerator was too small to store our drinks. We are ecstatic as to how God works things out. I thank God for the vision of S.T.A.N.D. SOULS TOUCHING ANOTHER NEEDING DELIVERANCE and want to be an asset to her as much as I can to show my gratitude. I would recommend it to anyone who needs to be loved and comforted during such hard times."
"I came to this country hoping for a better life for me and my children. Upon meeting the founder of S.T.A.N.D., I knew she was a woman of God, and God allowed us to have a bonding relationship. She heard God identify that I was to be the next guest at S.T.A.N.D. My family and I were blessed with the opportunity to get jobs, save money and purchas our own home! I have to thank God for allowing us to have this opportunity, aided by S.T.A.N.D., to fulfill the American dream of owning our home."
