A Message From Our Founder
The Ruby Project is a collaborative ministry
We have a team of exceptional leaders and educators with a shared passion, and servant's heart to help change the manifesto. I feel so blessed to help survivors of various forms of child abuse just by sharing my story and well a long journey to develop my f-a-i-t-h. What drives me? Bridging the gap between community social services and engaging the Church to incorporate informed trauma care with biblical principles vs. a worldview or clinical view.
more to come on that...
I wholeheartedly know that God can transform anyone and anything, anytime. In fact, I am an example of His wonderful handiwork.
News Flash! I was not raised in a Christain home nor did I enter ministry educated as a Christian. I simply said, here I am Lord, use me. So, "if God can use my life, He most certainly can use you too!
My Professional and Christian Leadership
I committed time, education, certifications, and work to develop my faith, healing, and warrior persona Indeed, what the enemy meant for evil, God is using for His good. Listen. I had no idea how I would make it, we prayed over each step ordered, implemented The Ruby Project, and trust God to cove us. He has been so faithful.
I'm Marcia (Mar-See-Ah) and my family calls me Marcie. I am the Executive Director and Founder of The Ruby Project Foundation a religious non-profit ministry created to help survivors of childhood abuse (women 18+).
The Ruby is sponsored by our church Good Shepherd Community Church, local churches, fundraisers, and people like you! I reside in a small and growing town in North Cali called Tracy, where my husband is the Senior Pastor.
Our ministry is a registered religious non-profit located in Northern with the starting goal to provide awareness, education training, and local ministerial services for survivors of childhood abuse, in need of life management, training, and life and career/job rehabilitation. Sound like a lot? But, nothing is too much for the Lord.
As we launched, in March, the Covid-19 pandemic created additional obstacles and like many, we are pivoting and realigning Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs). In 2020, we implemented working diligently with our community leaders and remaining transparent with our community partners.
Our approach includes biblical counseling and a personalized human approach to case management leveraged with exceptional faith-based resources, tools, and educators.
Psst, there is no hidden agenda or financial gain.
My purpose is three-fold.
To love others and point them to Christ.
Implement faith-based programs and services at little to no cost.
Change their narrative and build a community fueled with Awareness, Prevention, and Restoration
If you hear the Lord calling you to serve with us! We'd love to hear from you!
