Hope on a Mission, or HOAM (Aired on November 17 and 18, 2019)

Cara Mia Bacchiochi returns to RadioRotary to describe her continuing effort to help Poughkeepsie women who are homeless, most addicted to drugs or alcohol. At the corner of Main and South Clinton every Saturday morning and evening, sometimes in rain or snow, Bacchiochi and volunteers distribute food, clothing, and personal care items to homeless women,restoring dignity to homeless, addicted women of the streets. Ms. Bacchiochi herself drank excessively and used drugs, living in jails and on the street from 1985 when she came to school in Poughkeepsie. She then lived on the streets until 1990. Periods of sobriety after 1990 were interrupted by relapses until found herself back in jail in 2013 in the same cell she had occupied in 1990. In jail, she read The Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren and recognized that her purpose would be to help women with lives like hers. After she was released from jail that last time, finally sobered up and living clean, she started a career helping other women kick their destructive lifestyle With Hope on a Mission (HOAM), founded in 2015. She now feeds and helps dozens of the women of the streets and homeless men as well. To donate or volunteer, you can phone (914) 456-2633 or visit its Facebook page: Hope on a Mission HOAM.
