This month’s program was Public Issues. The club was honored to have Cindy Copeland speak about her experiences at the “Eagles Nest.” The Eagle’s Nest is a Christian home of healing for women and their children who are in crisis. Cindy was originally from Birmingham and has been living at the Eagle’s Nest for 1 1/2 years. She attends Ayers College and is studying to be a Paralegal. She is presently working in the bakery of a local grocery store.
Cindy was in rehab for 6 months, and there she found Christ. After leaving rehab she went to live at the Eagle’s Nest. There she found a comfortable, loving Christian environment where she has learned how to stand on her own and be a productive member of society. She is accepted for who she is and the people make her feel like she belongs. The Eagle’s Nest accepts women in need from any situation. The house presently has 5 ladies in residence now. Cindy is very thankful for the opportunity she has been provided there.
