Youngsters arrive at the residential program at Hephzibah on North Boulevard having had grievous wrong done to them. This tender community of caregivers focuses on creating a safe haven and sense of belonging for children without that experience. For decades that mission has been furthered by the generous work of Jeff Ebert and Bob Ebert who take a professional portrait of each new child. That portrait hangs in the lobby signifying each child's place in their new world.
On a recent tour at Hephzibah we noticed a wall of new and unfilled picture frames in an upstairs hall. They were just built and installed by Drew Matticks, an Oak Park Eagle Scout, as his special project. Good for him. Good for the kids learning resilience and love at Hephzibah.
