This week I speak with Jill Page; she holds Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees and has worked with non-profit organizations since 1991. As Director of Education at Urban Family Council, Jill wrote curriculum, trained and supervised a team of educators, and taught programs in public and private schools, churches, and community agencies for children in pre-K through high school. The work was primarily in Philadelphia public schools and included a small group program for teen mothers. At Bethany Christian Services, Jill recruited and supported volunteers who provided housing for the children of families in crisis. She also developed and implemented a long-term program for pregnant and parenting young women. Jill volunteered on the hotline and served on the board of an urban pregnancy resource center. These experiences have demonstrated the value of mentoring in a small group setting, shown the challenges young mothers face, even with government assistance, and inspired the desire to start Every Good Gift. Jill serves as its Executive Director. Jill has one child, her daughter Shanita, who was adopted at age fifteen. You won’t want to miss this interview where we see God overflowing from one of His children into the lives of generations. You will be inspired!
