Charbra Richardson knows what it’s like to fall on hard times. The DeSoto, Texas resident and mother of two found herself living in one of Buckner International’s transitional programs not long ago. After struggling with figuring out what to do next Charbra received a phone call from Buckner, a ministry dedicated to the transformation and restoration of the lives, offering to help and essentially changing her life.
Today, Charbra gives back to her community as a child care provider with Bucker, in addition to volunteering with a local artist once a month. Charbra helps watch children while their parents are in training. Parents, who like her, may be going through difficult times and are getting back on their feet.
For her dedication to service and commitment to her community, Charbra was honored as a Daily Point of Light award honoree. Point of Light spoke with Charbra to learn more about her volunteerism and her service work with Buckner.
