Aaron Reddin – @ItsTheVan
Aaron has been described as a “crazy, guerrilla homeless advocate.” He’s been fighting the public’s inaccurate views of our homeless neighbors for about 7 years now. During this time he has also fought the barriers that homeless friends face by meeting their immediate needs as immediately as possible. He’s still waiting for Ellen to call.
Lisa is innately drawn toward the hurting, marginalized and ignored. She will go to great lengths to make a difference in someone’s life. Lisa strongly believes that without action to back them up, our words are just noise and that we will live what we believe. Lisa is a banker by day, but despises numbers. She loves Jesus and good coffee. Some descriptive words submitted by her closest, dearest friends: humble; committed; servant; relevant; teachable; prefers to work behind the scenes; has to believe strongly in something to take a high profile part in it.
Jeremy has a heart to serve and help others. His work as a partner with Roberts Law Firm provides opportunities to network with companies and individuals with the same desire to serve and same motivation to give. Jeremy is convinced that every homeless friend deserves to have his or her basic needs met without sacrifice of dignity or compromise of conviction.
Jacob Slaton – @jacobslaton
Jacob is a relentless optimist with a passion for encouraging others to trust Jesus and to live a meaningful life. He believes wholeheartedly in offering unlimited dignity and love to our homeless neighbors with no strings attached. Jacob is an editorial photographer with a studio in downtown Little Rock. He and his wife Micaiah have two kids and eight chickens. Jacob can often be found driving around Hillcrest in a beat-up Nissan pickup truck with the windows down and the Grateful Dead blaring.
