A Life-Changing Journey
In the summer of 2000, Michelle Powell, a single mother of two, began a journey that would ultimately change her life and positively impact the lives of many children in need. Michelle’s first vision of Let’s Make a Difference may have been formed using only her limited resources – a simple meal and a game of kickball at the local park; but it was the positive feedback from the handful of children to whom she reached out that inspired her to make that vision a reality.
Strengthened by her commitment to ministry and her work as a consultant for Medina Schools, Michelle has persevered in overcoming obstacles while developing the Let’s Make a Difference Program. She has organized and presides over a board of directors; oversees and joins with a volunteer outreach team that plans and provides the daily summer activities; and still remains the caring inspiration for Medina’s underprivileged kids through her leadership and guidance.
