Hello, I am Roxanne Carey.  I am the Fundraising Manager for Human Connection Revolution (HCR).  My reason for and devotion to HCR is personal.  I have a twin sister who died in 2003 for reasons that HCR may have been able to prevent.  She like so many other Participants in HCR just need(ed) an opportunity to heal and learn that she had worth.  We all do.  We all have gifts to contribute to our world.  In fact, I believe we are each a specific part in God’s Symphony.  We all have a role unique in who we are.  When people like my twin involve themselves in aimless activities and behaviors there are always underlying reasons to why destruction is chosen over construction.  In my/our case, sexual abuse destroyed our intended solid self-perception of ourselves and replaced it with a sense of worthlessness.  We believed that love came from unloving sources and caustic activities.  Drugs, danger and adrenalin were outlets of escape from the real pain.  Inevitably, a suicide attempt prevailed her life, 18 years after the original event.  Before her dying, she was in and out of half way houses, homeless and living a very dangerous, non-opportunistic life.  She needed HCR.  Many, many others do as well.

I faired much more fortunately, though a long battle and many evidences of poor judgement over the years, I did receive counseling, healing and opportunities.  The professional counseling was not successful in my case.  The successful and permanent healing came in the form of a woman with a vision to help others heal from similar experiences. The result from and continued efforts of people helping like-people learn who they really are, what they are really worth, and that they are unique, deserving of dignity can change the world.  There is no substitute for experience and there is no more qualifying element for success than self-dignity and the opportunity to achieve.

The HCR Team is the connection for humans in Houston and surrounding areas to receive hope and real change.  This Revolution in change is made possible by contributions from people like you.  Please, donate today.  We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit with all donations transparently and properly accounted for.

“If I can stop one heart from breaking, I shall not live in vain;
If I can ease one life from aching,
Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin Into his nest again,
I shall not live in vain.”
