When a leader who has gone before is about to move on, or relinquish there duties to the next generation of leaders, a ceremony may be conducted called Passing the Torch. The next generation receives the responsibility of carrying on the legacy that has been established. However some legacies should not be passed on. Instead the fire must be put out, and a new type of light must erupt. Each day at Acres of Hope women are seeking to tear down strongholds, and build up new ways to live. They are seeking to pass on to their children new legacies, new hopes, and the fullness of life in ways they may not have received themselves. We are proud of the Moms who show up each day and fight to live different lives than what they have seen, lived, or been given. It takes courageous women to do what they are doing each day.
