Parent Testimonials

“Carolyn received her first HUGS FROM HOME on a day she was a little down, so it was a great pick-me-up.” 

“Thank you for all you ladies do for the students at Bryan College.  What a wonderful ministry.  It’s comforting to know that the students who are miles from home can be touched by others who care about them where they are.”
