Providence Home “Building Hope Virtual Event” Featuring Big Names Making Big Impact   


Columbia, March 22, 2021: Historic Providence Home is making a surprise announcement in conjunction with its 4th annual Building Hope event. The big reveal will come as part of the virtual show planned for Thursday, March 25 at 7 p.m., hosted again this year by popular Columbia radio personality Kelly Nash.  Building Hope will feature the testimony and musical talents of Jim Sonefeld, a founding member of Hootie and the Blowfish, as well as our resident men, and the community leaders and caregivers who fuel our mission.

“This is a big day for us,” Providence Home Executive Director Rob Settle, said.  “Our Building Hope event will truly showcase the strides our resident men are making and the hope that lives at Providence Home all because we’ve invested our faith and trust in Jesus Christ and because so many generous citizens in our community have invested their treasure and time in Providence Home.”

Building Hope will profile Providence Home men living in victory including 31-year-old Andrew. He’s battled an alcohol addiction for many years and was in and out of various centers of help before finding Providence Home late last year. Today, Andrew is a trusted employee of a major package delivery company and learning to trust that God has a great plan for his life.  “I’m the one who’s breaking the generational curse,” Andrew said. “That’s what I’m learning here and what I’m striving every day to achieve.”

Hear from other residents whose wives and families are welcoming them back home after years of disappointment and estrangement.

“A lot of work, a lot of rebuilding trust and broken bonds – a lot of healing happens here,” Providence Home Program Director Mike Byars, said.

“This is the most significant undertaking yet in our 57-year history,” Settle said.  “We cannot wait to let everyone know what’s about to happen here at Providence Home!”
