August 2020: Kristan Waterman of Door of Hope

During August 2020, 33% of Ring True profits will go to support the ministry of Door of Hope led by Kristan Waterman. Based in Detroit, with broad international reach, Door of Hope is the product of a decade of Kristan’s relationships and work following the path God has laid out to empower women.

There are communities in our world where the value of women is determined by men. Unfortunately this arrangement leaves many women in positions of servitude rather than teamwork, destitution rather than support and in oppression rather than flourishing. The result? Millions of women all over the world find themselves abandoned, left to sex slavery, child marriage, female infantacide, homelessness, starvation, and more.

Door of Hope exists to meet women in these places. Inspired by Kristan’s quest to help women encounter a Savior who could reveal their worth, the team at Door of Hope works to offer safety to the soul and to unlock the potential in all women, not just to survive, but also to thrive in an empowering and culturally relevant way.

While still in its humble beginnings, Door of Hope currently serves around 20 women on a personal level and over 200 women more broadly, including internationally. Door of Hope builds relationships by meeting needs, primarily through teaching English as a second language, as well as offering citizenship tutoring, tutoring for children, driving for women, providing groceries, accompanying women to doctor’s appointments, and so much more. In every woman overlooked, there is infinite potential, and Door of Hope seeks to empower people like you to be the key that unlocks it.
