One of the most courageous things to admit is, “I need help.” The Collective’s mission and philosophy is designed around building dignified interdependent relationships where we freely admit we need one another.
1 Corinthians 12:25-26: “…there should be no division in the body, but that its parts should have equal concern for each other. If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it.”
“I enjoyed helping others with their resume, job search and helping in the food pantry when needed. On days I had a job interview I would go to The Collective before or after. I felt that if I didn’t go I wasn’t fulfilling my purpose.”
