After overcoming some significant and serious challenges in her life, doTERRA Wellness Advocate Paula Millsaps decided to take her newfound strength and love for others and put it into something helpful and constructive. Paula founded the nonprofit Joel 2 Missions, an organization that focuses on helping women and children who are struggling in underprivileged communities.
In 2017, Paula applied for matching support from the doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation® going towards the purchase 8.6 acres of property and a building in Pennsylvania. This building will be used to house, teach, counsel, and heal women and children coming out of domestic violence and sex trafficking situations.
When the healing center is ready and fully functioning, it will house women and children who have endured tragic situations related to violence and trafficking. The Joel 2 Missions center will be a place where victims can feel safe, be given medical care, food, and shelter, and receive counseling, job skill training, and services.
