Bobbi Jo Reed is an American Hero. She is the mother of the broken, forgotten, abandoned and abused. One by one, Bobbi Jo reaches a hand down into the darkness and pulls her children into the light.
With love, a hug, a safe place to live and a program for recovery, Bobbi Jo is taking hundreds off of the streets every day. She is transforming lives and transforming a community.
To understand her story, we must first meet the woman who was deeper and darker than any soul she has saved.
Bobbi Jo was an addict of alcohol and drugs. She lived on the street and prostituted her body. She was kidnapped, beaten, raped, cut open, and left for dead. When it couldn’t get any darker, Bobbi Jo was called to Christ.
We follow this story of Bobbi Jo Reed as she takes us to hell and back. How she was saved. Why she was chosen. And why more than 7000 souls now call her, “Mom.”
