Mrs. Vicki K. Hemmer
Founder and President
January 14, 2016: I am pleased to anounce that By HIS Spirit Ministries closed on our first youth safe house, thanks to our Lord's blessing and direction. We projected opening the youth house by June 2016, but we have been held up by the City zoning board. We are now projecting to open the house by Thanksgiving 2016.
Your financial support and prayers will make this project happen and we can start blessing the children of our community.
With our Lord's help, we will establish other By HIS Spirit Ministries youth houses. Our second and third houses will be located near Bellevue Elementary school and Dr. King Magnet Elementary School.
Our Lord's vision sees one or two By HIS Spirit Ministries youth houses near every school in the City.
Please explore our web site and see what we will bring to the community.
I would like to meet and get to know all of you. I would also like not to fill this whole page with "all about me," but it can't be helped.
I graduated from Corcoran High School and received an Associate's Degree from OCC majoring in RTV and Communications. I worked for Love 105 Christian Radio Station (early 80's) starting as an announcer, adding office manager and sales to my duties. I wrote, produced, and aired a children's program called "Little Beginnings." Great for the ego, no benefits and bad for the purse. Moving on, I worked real-estate, contracts and all, but the hours were bad for a mom of two small boys. I took and passed a civil service test, interviewed, and was hired as the first female foremen for the City of Syracuse in 1992. "They told me they had to hire a female. Thank you Jesus." Working first for the Dept. of Aviation, I trained all new hires, developed the employees orientation book, ordered stock, did scheduling and payroll along with supervising 8 - 14 laborers. Transferring to the Parks Dept., my crew and I delivered and set up tables, chairs, bleachers and anything required for special events throughout Syracuse. Also we cleaned up assigned parks. I then transferred to D.P.W. My job oversaw the dispatchers, payroll and the city cleanup crew. I left the city job after eighteen years of service.
During this time my church involvement included the positions of Secretary, treasurer, board of trustees and teacher.
I am the co-owner of six rental properties with 16 units., five are located on Syracuse's south side. Every unit has been remodeled and meet both codes and Section 8 inspections. One of these properties I acquired as a board up, hiring and overseeing the restoration of this two family house. This included, new wiring and plumbing, adding new furnaces and hot water heaters, gutting a room that had a fire, remodeling both kitchens and bathrooms, jacking and repairing the front porch and installing new windows and doors. I also had to have the front yard dug up to replace the sewer and water lines.
I pray you agree that the gifts and talents the Lord has given me find me qualified for the work required for the vision of By HIS Spirit Ministries.
