H.O.M.E. Graduate: Aaron Heath
Aaron Heath did not spend his formative years in a cozy family home. To this day Heath does not know his father, and his mother wasn’t there for him. In and out of both juvenile and adult jails, his life was out of control. Heath came to House of Mercy Enterprises (H.O.M.E.) last year fresh out of one of these incarcerations. He was looking for something different, something that would help him be a better father to his 2-year-old son, King. It was King’s arrival into Heath’s life that he feels was his life’s most defining moment.
Heath wanted to be a better man, a better father, and he wanted a better life for his son and himself. At H.O.M.E. Heath found a closer relationship with God. Through that relationship, he became a better man and father. “I’ve grown strong in Christ, and how to be a loving person to other individuals.”
Heath Recently began working for Cemco, he also recently got married. Heath met Charlee Rogers when she came to H.O.M.E. about a month after Heath. Both had children, they had similar life experiences, and they bonded in friendship as they developed a closer relationship with Christ. What began as a friendship, turned in to something more profound. So, Heath asked the program director Preston Crow for permission to date Rogers. They fell in love and were married in February in the dayroom at H.O.M.E. Soon; they plan to move into a place of their own. About H.O.M.E. Heath says, “It’s a great place to be. If you’re looking for God, He’s here, if you want to find Him, He’s here, at the House of Mercy.”
