Hey Everyone, This is Jeanette Bradley, evangelist and founder of 2nd Chance Ministries, a 501c3 non-profit street ministry I've led for almost 14 years to help the homeless, prostitutes, trafficked victims, and anyone needing a 2nd chance, with a hand up, not a hand out. I've experienced every aspect of these issues and more.

I want to buy an RV so I can make fresh, hot food for the hungry, and provide hot showers and a way to wash their clothes. I would love to get the RV by this fall. I understand how blessing others with great food, providing hot showers so they'll feel clean and healthy, and having clean clothes to wear can help them to have more self-respect, self-esteem and most of all... hope.

When I was homeless I used to eat once or twice a week, and sometimes had to wear the same clothes for many days at a time and maybe get a weekly shower.    
I was dying in hopelessness.

It's amazing how just showing love and friendship to those less fortunate can change their lives and give them a reason to live and hope and rebuild their lives and not just settle for where they are.

 I am a 63 year old, part-time waitress, and i cannot do this without you. None of us should ever let our past, or others, or our circumstances define us,  but we do.

I wrote a book in 2003 titled "I'm Still Standing", and by the grace of God, I always will.  (You may learn more about my ministry and myself, give support and/or donate, and buy my book at:, this will also help fund my ministries work. I hope to always be a voice for the voiceless, and become a champion for the outcast.  

Please help me in this labor of love.  In case you're wondering why I call this RV "The Love Truck, it's because when I prayed for a name, God gave me this:  the Bible says that God is love.......and love never fails!!!   I sincerely thank you for your help and generosity. 
                                            God bless you,    Jeanette Bradley

Hello my friends, I wanted to thank you all again for all the love truck donors, supporters, and friends. We will get it on the road by mid January 2017. I couldn't have done it without you. I have found out about more costs related to the love truck, such as dumping fees for water/waste, expensive costs for winterizing it every time we use it, which is at least 2 times per month. And there are a few more unforseen expenses. So if anyone would care to donate, please, anything would be appreciated. Thank you all and God bless you with a very Merry Christmas! blessings, Jeanette/Mama J

Wow! I can't thank everyone who donated enough for helping this Godly vision to come true. I have crunched numbers, and with insurance, storage, and supplies such as bath towels, laundry soap, dishes, pots, etc, and sheets for curtains, we are still in need of more money. Anything would be appreciated. Thank you again for all your support and encouragement. Blessings, Evangelist Jeanette Bradley

Hey everyone! On this Thanksgiving Day, I truly give thanks for all the generous donations and support for The Love Truck. We are only a few hundred dollars away from getting it road-ready. I know God has brought me this far, and He's never let me down. So I'm still believing for him to go above and beyond, because nothing is impossible with God! Y'all have a very blessed Thanksgiving! Love Jeanette

The Love Truck has reached 78% of its goal. Thanks to everyone who has donated; I pray you'll continue to pray that I reach all our goal so I can get our truck on the streets by winter. Remember......there, but by the grace of God go I. Blessings, Jeanette
