Join Midday with K this Wednesday at 6:00pm for a live interview with Mireya Fouche of One Heart One Soul.
WHO IS ONE HEART ONE SOUL?
An innovative & creative organization that works within communities to raise awareness on social issues surrounding the homeless community. By showing the love of Christ, we provide platforms for communities to get involved and a voice for the voiceless. We’ve birthed programs such as “UNSPOKEN WORDS, a voice for homeless youth”, UMATTER: Chicago Winter Drive, and Second Chance Styling. We continue planting seeds into hearts of communities.
MISSION AND VISION
Our mission is to provide a voice for those who often go unheard. Drawing together members of the Chicago community to accomplish projects, we will raise awareness and eliminate misconceptions of often over-looked social issues surrounding the homeless community. Our goal is to provide opportunities for people to become actively involved & gain perspective of real-life issues existing in their own neighborhoods. Our vision is to provide bridges between churches, businesses, and communities that lead towards one mission – creating a positive impact on the lives of others. We are dedicated to the belief that help from many brings hope to all.
MIREYA FOUCHÈ & THE VISION
Inspired by (Acts 4:32) “All the believers were one in heart and mind”. Mireya Fouche, a young woman of faith and determination, found herself unstable while pursuing her degree in Apparel Manufacturing Management at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM), one of the top fashion schools in the nation. Determined to obtain her degree in the face of limited resources, she lived out of her suitcase while couch surfing for the 6 months prior to receiving her degree. Her education paid off and she quickly found herself emerged in Los Angeles fashion industry, however, she could not ignore the individuals sleeping on Skid Row and found herself volunteering at shelters and in the trenches. With the guidance of God, Mireya’s passion to give voice to invisible people who often went unheard and ignored led her to vacate her corporate career in L.A. and move to Chicago.
At the age of 27 she walked by faith and formed the organization One Heart One Soul. Currently, Mireya holds an Apparel Manufacturing Management degree from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising Los Angeles and will obtain a degree in Merchandise Management from the international Academy of Design and Technology Chicago. Recently Mireya has entered the field of HIV and community outreach and has received a State of Illinois HIV Testing and Counseling certificate. Mireya says, “I love what I do. I continue educating myself in order to educate others. The big picture for One Heart One Soul is amazing. I guess you’ll have to stay connected to see what we become, or better yet, join us as we move towards the future. We firmly believe that help from many brings hope to all.” Mireya Fouche, Founder and Director
